Okay so i mostly finished my baritone project
its a super strat with a single humbucker in the bridge
but the day before i tried out an esp stephen carpenter signature and i fell in love with the sound of a humbucker in the middle position...

But I don't have any idea which pickup to picK!!
Its an mahogany body and the bridge pickup is a Seymour SH-5
The Carpenter Pickup was just something duncan designed but i really liked the sound so maybe something similar?

Thank in advance guys

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I assume this is a 6-string... in which case, try an Alnico II pickup, it's fairly hot if you keep your tone high, but warm when rolled off.

EDIT: that or maybe one of the P-rails? it's got come cool tapping abilities on it as well... mmm... p-90 option in the middle position would be beauuuuty
