    Incoming Charvel - what should I replace the JB with?

    I've got a San Dimas on the way soon.

    I have a deep, burning, intense hatred for the JB. It's way too hot, and I just don't like the way it's voiced. I do, however, like the '59 which will be in the neck position.

    The OCD in me wants to look at Duncan pickups to keep them matching, so I'm curious what you guys would have in mind.

    As it stands, it looks like the Pearly Gates is going to be what I want - lower output, but not so low that I don't get any overdrive from the front end of the amp.

    Any other ideas?

    Ive only liked the JB in mahog. It just works. I'm gettin my JB replaced with an alt. 8 this Thursday, I can let you know how it sounds. It's in an alder neck thru Jackson.
    Otherwise, I have a distortion in mahogany, and its amazing for modern/most metal. For my playing style, it begs for a scooped eq.

    Where you buying it from? The place might be willing to switch that out for you considering SD has a 30 day trade in policy at no extra cost. And if you haven't paid for it I'd go that route if you can...but if you have contact SD to switch that out to a pup you'd prefer.
