Hi I have an Agile 2500 les paul copy and I'm looking to change the bridge pickup. I don't want a deep tone I want more of the high-end midrange maybe and some gain. Should I go with the P90 (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=306914) or the Dirty Fingers (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Guitar/Replacement/Parts?sku=304667) ?


Thanks.

Definetly Dirty Fingers. I have one in my fat strat, great for a high gain distortion but stays crisp at the same time. Also sounds great clean.

Ok I was leaning towards that one. Anyone ever used the P90 pickup?

I'd got P-94, all you get with a Dirty Fingers is mud. I've got a P-94, cuts through well and handles gain pretty well in the bridge position. Lotsa clarity.

Dirty fingers is pure crap. Go for p 94. Unless you wanna route room for a p 90.

Dirty fingers will suit you best for what you discribed.

I think the Drity Fingers lives up to its name, Its dirty mud. Try some of these pickups http://store.guitarfetish.com/humbuckers.html . The Dream 90 is an amzing pickup i hear.

why the hell would you choose gibson? for the sake of tone please look at Seymour Duncan, Rio Grande or DiMarzio. Or if your pockets are deep Bare Knuckles

To answer alot of the questioning about the reason I wanted that Gibson pickup is that I read the reveiws and thought it would fit my likings better than a super distortion pickup which has a deep tone for rythm. I want to break away from that "deeper tone" in the pickup because I personally don't like it. The heavey mahogony body will deepen up any tone I guess but I don't need a pickup to make it worse. I'm leaning towards the p-94 one now because I think it will sound good doubled up with my epiphone sg.

Any other pickups out there that might suit me?

The Dirty Fingers is very "deep" and bassy. Try a Seymour Duncan JB they should brighten up a mahogany guitar.

Before you buy this P-94, how much gain do you plan on stacking onto it? It sounds different than any normal P-90 that I've played, especially distorted. Gets quite twangy sometimes. Might not be what you're looking for if you're after a Green Day tone.

IMO the JB is way to trebly. Id still stick with a P94.
