Pickup that sounds like alnico nailbomb?

what is a pickup that i could get from seymour duncan that would sound close to a bare knuckle nailbomb? i read somewhere that the seymour duncan sh-14 sounds really close to a ceramic nailbomb. i dont care if i have to change magnets or anything. thanks

Just curious, if you like the nailbomb, why not get that?

I'm guessing the price, but y'know... quality usually doesn't come cheap FWIW, I am likely to put Nailbombs (or a combination of a Nailbomb and something else) in my LAG AP2000 some day when I have the spare cash, amazing pickups.

Well, that's a lovely name for a pickup.

An SD Custom 5 or DM Breed are the closest matches, with the Custom 5 being very slightly clearer and the Breed being very slightly thicker. For an Epi LP, I'd go for the Custom 5, even if the Nailbomb was an option; however, I do not believe any of those three is really that great for an Epi LP. For that guitar, I would use a SD Custom (plain, not Custom 5 or Custom Custom) or DM Evo 2.
