Whats a good neck pickup for ska music. Its pretty much got to have nice cleans. Like the sound from Reel Big Fish or Sublime

Gibson dirty finger would be '****ing' perfect.


Or an alcino 2 ( dont remember the name )

The amp and how you eq it is more important. Then I'd get something with single coils or a good fat neck pickup...Sorry I know nothing about which single coils are good and which ones aren't. Haha all I know is how much I love the twangy clean sounds I can get from the one in my RG550.

Imagined setup?

Fender blues junior, and a fender strat, or for a thicker sound get something with a nice full sounding neck pickup, like something from Seymour Duncan.

I have a blues junior and love the damn thing, I can get the best cleans out of it and It sounds sickkk with the handwired distortion pedal I got locally.

these would actually be all wrong for some things. a Dirty Fingers is a terrible pickup for cleans. it is a higher output pickup that is good for harder edged stuff.

the Alnico II you are thinking of is porbably the Seymour duncan that slash uses. that too, would be a poor choice because of the warmer, fuller tone.

for Ska, you need a snappier sound, almost quacky.

if you have a humbucker equipped guitar, get some SD Phat cats. P-90s are excellent for Ska and Reggae.

if you have a strat style guitar, get something vintage voiced.

single coil - Dimarzio HS-3
humbucker - Dimarzio Humbucker From Hell

that will only work if you have a good amp.

I also don't know which pickup you needed (humbucker or single coil)

I have a epiphone les paul studio and I play that in a Peavey Windsor Half Stack. I want to get these pickups for a Fender HSS Strat. They have tex mex pickups already are those any good?

get humbuckers. its impossible to get a good scratchy skank tone from a strat, unless you wire the bridge pup to the second tone control to round off the harshness.
