    For those styles, I'm going to suggest the JB. I'm usually not the biggest JB fan, but I was just listening to a couple of tunes that I recorded with the JB, and they happened to be STP tunes. The JB does those sounds really well. It's a tad compressed for my standard taste, and in the guitar I had it in (Dean Hardtail), it had an upper mid peak that I had a hard time dialing out. However, it sure does sound good on the tunes I recorded. Seymour likes it a bunch as well, so that's not all bad.

        I like C-5, Custom, CC, JB, and Antiquity. After all of them, I chose the C-5.
        It's the only bridge pickup that has everything I want to hear. Great highgain, great midgain, great clean, strong output, real tone. Some guys accuse it of being too light in the mids, but it's got tight percussive lows, neutral mids, and vintage highs.
        Let the mahogany body give you your mids. That's why I like it for Pauls.
        I have a Custom 5 in 3 Pauls, 1 McCarty, and 1 H-S-S strat. Sounds nice in all of them.

            The C-5 is a very nice pickup but keep in mind it can sound vintage at least to my ears and you may have to crank the mids on your amp for leads as I did. The C-5 requires your guitar/amp have great mids.

              A Seth Lover bridge would work really nice in a Paul.

                I've heard that also, but I haven't had experience with with the PG to compare.
