I was thinking of putting a Seymour Duncan '59 SH-1 in the Bridge and a SD JB in the neck. WOuld this be a pretty versatile and decent sounding combo??

That'd be stupid - the JB is way hotter then the 59 so you'd have an insanely loud neck pickup and a quiet bridge one. Putting them the other way round would be a start, but I'd take the Custom 5 over the JB in the bridge.

oh and the dimebucker and the bill laurence 500xl proved to be good very good pickups

i use powerhouse pickups in my ibanez, and a dimebucker in my dean, best sounding pickups ever

if ur more into metal, EMG's might be the way (or seymour duncan Livewires)

it's called different time zones, there are members from other countries here, and for someone in college it sure as hell isn't hard to post during a school day

EDIT: Ekim apparently you are just as stupid

NO!

No JB at all, and certainly not in the neck

Custom 5 bridge, 59 neck.

i haven't tried the custom V, but the JB is way too hot for the music you play... dual '59's even might be worth considering. Of course, it depends on your budget, amp, guitar, and where you are in the world.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

dude, he already said he plays blues, classic rock and jazz.

Also, I realised his gear is in his sig... I don't like how he doesn't list his amp...

don't double post

...just kidding, your browser crashes when you try to edit posts too?

The Custom 5 is great fun, it's actually quite bright but not squeally. It just means that it adds a nice bit of top-end bite to a warm guitar like a Les Paul or similar, but it with it being essentially a ramped-up Alnico V paf type you get nice vintage tones when you roll the volume off a bit.

Oh, and surely an Epiphone 15w reverb is an amp of some description...I figured it was a Valve special or similar.

It may be more fortuitous to get a new amp first .

I'd definitely stay way from the JB.

(a) yeah, it crashes if i edit a post with a quote in it. At least it doesn't always, but it does it enough where i'm not going to risk it.

(b) sounds good, then.

(c) I missed that... i saw the reverb and thought it was an effect...
