    What's a good neck pickup to match a TZ that's not an AN?

    Putting my Tone Zone into the bridge of my SC420, tuned to D standard. Playing progressive rockish type stuff.

    Was previously thinking Humbucker from Hell, but I'm afraid the output difference would be a little more than I'd like, by the looks of it. I need a lot of clarity out of it, because I'm slowly gravitating to the point where I prefer singles in the neck (hence why I was looking at the HFH).

    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    You might try a Steve's Special. It's a higher output pickup, but it really sounds and responds like a lower output one. Or a Jazz, if you don't mind mixing brands.

    Myself, I liked the PAF Joe with the TZ.
