I am still searching for "the tone" if you get what I'm saying.

I have a 57 classic in the neck of my elitist les paul (epi) and a jb in the bridge.

I think it sounds great but I'm still looking for "that" tone.

I want a pickup with a crispy distortion in the bridge. Basically I want an eddie van halen tone.

Then in the neck I want a smooth velvety pickup for a Sweet child o mine tone.

I was looking at the alnico pro for the neck. I am pretty sure on that. The 57 classic is just a little harsh on the high notes and I want it to be smoother.

The JB has a nice crisp but it's a little thin on the high notes. It has just a tad too much treble. I want the crisp but not the thinness.

Anyone have any recommendations?

Try an Alinco II Humbuck by Seymor Duncan in the neck - tht is what slash uses for the smoother GnR songs

^Eh, i'm a swineshead man through and through. Try out an xbucker and a warthog in the neck. I'm sure dave will tell you more on the warthog, he has one himself.

id say seymor duncan for sure man they have that crisp tone or after

cant beat bare knuckles
i agree with the vh2 in the bridge. tie between stormy monday or mule in the neck-cant go wrong with either. i dont really reccomend any alnico II pup in a lp neck, it can get muddy as ****.

Wait everyone.....

Threadstarter, what amp do you have? That's gonna' alter the tone a lot more than pickups...
