EVH used a PAF pickup. From what I can gather, the closes sound you can get with be with a PAF PRO, Evolution, or Alnico 2. I would stay away from super high-output pickups.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I'm too old for the Jim Morrison look now. When I was gigging I had a fine arse.
Eddie wound his own humbucker at one point (the point at which people say his tone was the best), and he scatterwound it heavily. One coil was overwound while the other was extremely underwound.
