Hey guys,

I just recently got my hands on a PRS Singlecut in great shape at a garage sale but it just needs pickups. I already have the same guitar so I don't want to install the same pickups. I am looking for a great clean sound with great warmth off the neck pickup. My old Gibson '61 reissue has the Gibson '57 Classic in the neck and the clean sound was amazing. I am just looking for some advice on what to throw in there and if any of you guys know an amazing clean pickup, please let me know.

Thanks.

How much do you want to spend?

Out of the big names, I like the SD Alnico Pro II, and the DiMarzio PAF Pro.

I don't care about the cost but I know the '57s are a bit pricey. I will look into those Duncans.

The Duncan antiquities are nice if $$ is not an object, as is Bare Knuckle pickups.

You should try a SD Seth Lover, DM Bluesbucker or a Gibson Burstbucker 1. They're all made with uneven coils so if you like the sound of the Gibson 57 but want something a little bit different so you're not just getting a duplicate guitar then getting a pickup with similar specs as the 57 but with uneven coils would be a good step. Mismatched coils give you a little better clarity, especially in the mids. The Burstbucker is just a little bit mismatched, the Seth Lover is a little more uneven and the Bluesbucker is very mismatched and can sound almost like a P90.

Oh yeah, +1 to this. Also, the DiMarzio Air Classic. I like that one much more than the PAF Pro.

Definitely second this^

I run it on one of my guitars, BEAUTIFUL cleans. Keep the volume and tone knob on 10 for a very bright jazzy tone, roll tone knob down to about 5-6 for a really glossy smooth tone!

If price doesn't matter, get something custom.

I personally recommend Stephens Design. I had him make a set of pickups for my Strat a few years back and they were amazing, especially for bell tone cleans. Dave Stephens probably makes the best PAF clones on the market.
