  • Blues in bridge.

    I have a Jay Turser Les Paul copy, but with a chambered body.

    I'm wondering what the best blues pickup would be for it. I have a '59 neck, so that should help match them up pretty well. I want a great blues clean tone and a slightly-dirty tone. I'm hoping for something very crisp, with enough bass (probably not the PG). I play through a POD 2.0 and a Marshall MG series amp, if that helps. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

    i would reccomend the 59b, but the alnico II i have heard is also very very nicely suited for the job
    esp ltd deluxe ec-1000 (amber sunburst)
    fender mim standard strat
    peavey classic 30
    johnson j-station
    original ibanez ts-9 (not in use)
    dunlop crybaby (sometimes in use)
    yamaha f-310p acoustic
    taylor 410 acoustic

      Hi kap; I have a 59n mated with a 59b and they seem like a perfect pair.
      However, they're always clean. I get "dirt" after the guitar.

        59' bridge sounds like what you are describing to me.
