Hello everybody.I'm going to change the neck pickup of my Jackson Dinky DK2 and need your advice!
This guitar has:

-Alder body
-Maple neck (24 frets)
-Rosewood fingerboard
-Floyd rose trem (lycensed)
-H-S-S configuration

It now has a Duncan Designed SC-101,but I'm looking for a warmer tone (I use it mostly for clean tones).In the bridge it has a Blues Saraceno PATB-3 humbucker,but I don't think the Patb-1 would fit...I'd like to have a neck pickup also good for solos,since sometimes the bridge pickup sounds too bright.
I play mainly rock and some punk (ac/dc,Skid row,Paramore,Gun's) and use a Digitech RP300 (don't know if it might be useful)
My choice was among the Little '59 and the Dimarzio Chopper (maybe an Air norton S?)
Any idea?If you have any other pickup to suggest,feel free to add!

The Duncan lil 59 is great.

I would probably choose a Dimarzio YJM or Dimarzio Air Norton S.

both are great pickups. The YJM is a bit warmer and lower output than the Air Norton, but if your amp is up to par then that shouldn't be a problem at all.

if you have to bass maxed out and the gain to a level where is the sound is starting to get muddy, yeah easily. But if you have a decent gain level and eq levels then you should be fine

Well,I know that choosing a pickup is quite difficult since there are a lot of parameters to consider (the amp first of all),but in your opinion the little '59 is good for solos?It's a ceramic magnet,I have experience only with Alnico...

Really, you cant go very wrong with that pickup. It just is a very decent one. Used by ALOT of pro players. So it wont be useless, thats for sure. Just buy it and test it, there's a big chance you'll find it awesome. And if you dont, you can easily resell it or try to swap with someone for another pickup.
