They are meant to be slightly hotter than a typical PAF humbucker; about on a par with the Burstbucker, I suppose. Slash has a real thing for 1950's spec Les Pauls, so his signature pickups are...

Assuming they are available in your neck of the woods, take a look at the offerings from Markbass, the micro heads from GK, and the micro heads from SWR. Any one of them should suit your needs well.
