which pick up is better for rock, clean stuff, and metal? A dimarzo super distortion or Seymour Duncan jb? Im going to install one of these in my agile al-3100

both are horrible for cleans. Duncans custom custom would be better than either one. Thats assuming you want to stick with Duncan and DiMarzio.

The super distortion is good for anything that needs definision with their distorted tone. It's great for some types of metal, shred, and 80's rock. It's ok for other types of rock but not all that great.

The JB is muddy and it's really good for much of anything in my opinion.
Not taking any online orders.
