alright, I was looking at the alnico II for my neck pickup. I have a 59 classic in my bridge, and for i neck i wanted something with a good tone and good cleans. so do you think that would do? i want it to sound like the solo in "knockin on heavens door" by GNR.
What kind of guitar do you have?? The make and type of the body will help decide what a good pup would be.
Have you looked at the Gibson 498T?

I have played one before and they sound pretty good. Alot like some of the older rock that you were talking about.
take a look on www.swinesheadpickups.co.uk

Look at the condor or runaway
Sound clips too..
