I am getting a Pearly gates neck pickup in my Les Paul. Wondering what bridge pickup would complement it? I need a good/decent clean tone, I want the two pickups to be good for each other, I play mostly hard rock, but i want a pickup that can do blues and metal well too. I need a very dynamic and musical responsiveness/tone. I was thinking about a Custom 5 (sh-14). Any opinions?

i imagine (having only tried the custom custom and custom) that that'd probably work. obviously wait to hear from anyone who's tried it, lol.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Custom 5 is the perfect fit from Duncan for what you want, I have the same combo in my Epi.
Actually called Mark!

Thanks guys. Before I order, is the Custom 5 too high output? It's not going to be harsh or muddy is it?
