First let's get this out the way, I like invaders... only in the brightest of guitars but I like them.
So I have recently installed one in my mayones duvelle. It's got a poplar top and is snappy as fuck sounding, used to have a nazgul that came in it stock but I never really got on with it it was ok but I wanted more output and nastiness.
So I'm happy with the invader but it has a sentient in the neck which I also want rid of. My go to neck pickups would be the obvious 59 or jazz but I'm not sure if they will be horribly unbalanced with an invader?
Anyone got any other suggestions? I thought maybe a distortion neck would work. Probably don't want the invader neck as I'd like some amount of versatility but I'm more keen on decent lead tones on this guitar than cleans so I'm not too worried about having something that can give me sparkly cleans.
