I just got an Epiphone Les Paul, and the pickups really arent good. So, when I was waiting for the line for strings to shorten up, I started playing a Jackson RR model, the one with a single pickup. It was used, so the Floyd and EMG HZ were one, replaced with a JB. Its the exact same specs as my guitar
Mahogany body with maple top
# Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard
# Glued-in, set neck
# Grover tuners
# LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
And i played through a Marshall Valvesate, and was simply great. I could play anything. (Genre wise)
So, im pretty much set on getting this pickup, but what would be a good neck pickup for it?
I mainly play metal, but i also play virtually everygenre

thats not a Jackson RR....

the only Jackson w/ a single humbucker is the 24 which uses ACTIVE EMG's

There was no battery compartment in the back, and the guy who sold it said it was an HZ (he workes at the store)

will ur neck pickup be used for bassier rhythm riffs, or more cleans?

i think we need some more info about what ur looking for in a pickup.

Both, but probably bassier rhythm riffs more. But i would prefer it if it could do both

I have the JB in the bridge and I put a '59 in the neck. I like it, it's nice and creamy on high gain, and nice and warm sounding on clean. HOWEVER - I discovered I liked it more when I flipped it, so that the slugs are on the neck side, rather than the screws. Mine's an Ibanez Prestige S with two humbuckers and a five way switch. I don't use the split positions very much, so I'm not even talking about that, I'm just talking about full humbucker, I liked it better when I flipped it. I can't really explain what it did to the tone, other than to say that I believe it took away a little bottom end (there was too much, for the way I like to set my amp for the bridge position), and made it a little more focused.
