Just a quick question. Which seymour duncan pickup would you guys reccomend for metal? I am putting a '59 in the neck so i need a pickup for the bridge.
What wood is your guitar made?
If you want to keep your options open you could go for a JB. It's not the most metal pickup ever but it's certainly no slouch and gives you a lot more versatility than, say, a Dimebucker.
Duncan Distortion. Its like the JB but tighter and more.. metal.
I'd personally say Invader or JB
Jb might work but I have heard that Invader is too muddy in basswood.
