Ok so I'm building a korina neck/body guitar, and I need some pickup recommendations from you guys. I'll organize this nicely so its easy on the eyes.


Neck (H): I need something that has really nice humbucker cleans, like Joe Satriani's version of Sleep Walk. It also needs to have a fat lead tone like on Baptism of Solitude, but not too buttery and muddy with medium/high gain.

Middle (S): I kind of need a do-it-all single coil here. Something that can do thick Stevie Ray Vaughan stuff and RHCP-type funk. Preferably low output, and can be a stacked hb OR true single coil.

Bridge (H): I need something that sounds huge and powerful, but not muddy at all. I was thinking a pickup with an alnico 8 magnet, like an SD Crazy 8. I heard an Alternative 8 in my friends Fat Strat and loved it. I do fear that those might be too muddy though

No budget. This guitar won't be done for a long time and I'm buying the pickups one at a time.

I don't know about SRV but John Frusciante uses the neck p'up nearly all the time. As well as the middle single, I would wire it so the neck humbucker can be split if it were me

^SRV uses the neck pickup most of the time too. I just despise every split humbucker clean tone I've ever heard. I know I'm not going to get the same timbre as a neck pickup, but I want to get as close as possible with the middle. Now that I think about it, I just need any good single coil pickup. What single coils sound good in korina?
