I'm in need of a bridge pickup and quite tore between these pickups.

Seymour Duncan JB and Full Shred
Dimarzio Evo 2 and X2N

I have a Seymour Duncan Jazz in the neck. I know most people will probably say go JB because it's Seymour's favorite set but I might want to look for something different for a change. Aside from those I listed if you have any better pickup please do recommend me.

So which one of these will make my sledgehammer more versatile?

Oh, and my range of music is from blues-rock to metal. Most of the time it's GnR, Velvet Revolver, Black Label Society, Metallica... u know, the usual stuffs.

Always go with seymour duncan, if you really don't want the JB, then take the other, but stay with seymour duncan. And if you wouldn't mind active pickups, then look for the blackouts from seymour duncan, they're great! (they're on my wishlist too)

judging by your influences, you REALLY REALLY won't like the X2N.

the JB and full shred would be perfect for you

In my experience, Dimarzio is far superior. Duncan JB'ss always seem muddy to me, but the Evo2 and the X2N sound clear as a bell on clean, and ballsy as hell on dirty!
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

What about Seymour Duncan Custom Custom? Anyone has one of these?

funny, most people cite the JB as being too trebly, to the point of ear bleeding: at which point, a 1 meg cap and 1k resistor fixes that. I found my JB to be just perfect, if anything, the 59 in the neck of my paul is just mud.

I don't know but from all the sound clips I can hear some clear clipping from the X2N. Is it's it's distinct character or maybe they all used bad amps?

None of the above are really that suitable.

Duncan Custom 5 would be much better, or go for a Silverback PAf from Rockmonkey.

the aLnico II pro is a low output humbucker, I believe, so... you may be disapointed in its tone. The Jazz, though, you're gonna love.
