I am replacing the two humbuckers on my Epiphone Les Paul.

Is it important for the neck and bridge pickups to be similar in output and characteristics or can they be radically different then each other?

I play in the middle position using both pickups at the same time a lot so that might make a difference.

They can be pretty different. But there's a lot of experimentation to do with these setups.

What kind of tone are you looking for? What pickups are you looking at?

I am looking at Dimarzios. A high output at the bridge and low at the neck. Something that sounds like a single coil but is hum cancelling at the neck.

But I also want the middle position to sound good. Will it with two very different pickups in the two positions?
