I was thinkin' of replacing the pickups in my Epi SG because they sound pretty bland. The bridge pickup is fine, but it's just "okay" and I want a bit more clarity, little more output, maybe more treble, etc. As for the neck, it's pretty weak and a lot worse than the bridge. Simply, I don't like it. Here's what I was thinking, I wanna get a vintage, paf sounding pickup for the bridge, maybe a bit overwound. What I found is the GFS Alnico Fat Pat and the Golden Age overwound pickup from stewmac. Which would be a better choice for what I'm looking for? As for the neck, I really like the p90 sound, so I'm thinking of getting the GFS Mean90. Do you guys think this would be a good upgrade for now? And I say now because I can't afford more expensive ones and probably won't for a while. When I do get more money, I'll probably get a Phat Cat and either a SD '59 or a Gibson Classic '57 Plus. What do you guys think of this plan?

In short: Which is better, GFS Fat Pat or Golden Age overwound in the bridge? And would a GFS Mean90 in the neck along with the GFS/Golden Age be a good idea? This is temporary.

TBH, I'd rather save a bit more cash and replace just the bridge p-up with something nice. Perhaps a DiMarzio PAF Pro?
