    59 is more defined sounding

    jazz has a more passive sound.

    pearly gate is even LESS biting

    I find the 59 a bit too boomy in the lows. The Jazz is much better in this department. Out of all the PAF class neck piskups, I like the Pearly Gates the best. It's not as bassy as the 59, but is more muscular than the Jazz.

    I prefer the jazz, but what don't you like about the Anderson pickups?

    I think it depends on the guitar. The 59 for a brighter, the Jazz for a darker guitar.
    I think that the 59 and Jazz aren't so different. The 59 cuts the highs, where the jazz let them through.

    the 59 is basically a PAF which makes it warmer more vocal in the neck.
    the jazz however is my favorite for its clarity
    I had a 59 in the neck of my Les Paul and just changed it to a Jazz last week. I like the Jazz a lot better too, as the 59 was too warm for my tatse. I also have the Jazz coil-split and it sounds good, and I didn't need to add a switch or a new pot, it just runs off the tone pot.

    I have an Anderson Cobra - mahogany neck with mahogany/maple body. I don't like the stock pickups. I want nice rock & jazz tones, but also great cleans are very important. I have the ability to tap/split the coils with onboard switches. I have settled on a 59 for the bridge, but I am unsure about the neck pickup. What are the differences between the 59 and Jazz neck? Does anyone have any clips? Your comments?

    Thanks in advance!
