    Neck pickup to match Aldrich

    What neck pickup should I get to match the Aldrich bridge?

    The guitar is bolt on maple neck, mahogany body, koa top. I've tried a BKP Emerald, and it was so-so, nothing specifically bad, just uninspiring. I tried the Aldrich neck and it was so-so, uninspiring as well. I tried a Duncan Jazz and it was too glassy.

    I'm leaning towards a 59, but I'm not sure.

    Also, the most important feature is that it must come in zebra... because aesthetics are more important than tone.

    59 sounds like a good choice to me.

    That or a Whole Lotta Humbucker.

    Maybe Alnico II? I've also heard that the BKP Riff Raff neck is pretty awesome.

    That's a weird pickup, and I like it, but I definitely think it would sound a little too tubular for that combination.

    '59 is not a bad idea.

    I'd say 59' or Suhr SSV+

    Have you tried the Sentient? To me its the best of the 59 and the Jazz. I know Duncan offers them in a 6 string now
