I am starting to think that the bridge pickup on my Gibson SG and Gibson Custom ES-137 Classic are to muddy, but I like their dynamics. What is an alternative that doesn't loose the bass and output, but clears up the sound. Both guitars come stalk with a 490R humbucker in the neck position and a 498T humbucker in the bridge position. The 490Rs sound really nice, but the 498Ts are terrible.

Try a Seymour Duncan SH-14 Custom 5 in the bridge, for the same crunch and fatness, but with a good amount of clarity.

yeah, you could never go wrong with some Seymour Duncans

Actually, you can. Which is why recommended a particular model.

Almost every company has embarrassing and awful products in their lineup.

well, then i can never go wrong with them, because i like every pickup there is, even is an old-ass squier of mine, when on a distortion channel, you get horrible screeching feedback, and can barely hear the guitar. so, that should sum up why i don't hate any pickups, because the ones i have on that Squier, are the worst of them all

my one problem with the Seymour Duncan SH-14 Custom 5 is that I can't find one with a pickup cover, which my other pickup has on it. I don't want to be a "want to be Jimmy Page" with the one uncovered pickup.

seymour duncan 59' or custom 5. the custom 5 is hotter and the 59' is low output.

dimarzio 36th anniversary paf pickups are also nice.

Dude has 3 Gibsons and can't even spell 'bored'? His parents should spend a bit more on educating him and less on guitars.
