    I say the Invader too. Have one in the bridge of a Ibanez RG and with a RAT 2 itīs almost overwhelmingly fat...but with the ceramic magnets the word "warm" is perhaps is not describing the tone of it? More "fat & agressive"?

    What's a PATB-2? I really love the BBQ, but wish I could find the equivalent Duncan just as thick and same output!

    The 59's pretty thick for a lower output pickup if you ask me. For higher output pickups I'd say the Duncan Distortion. I haven't played an Invader so I can't comment on it.

    I'd say the Custom Custom has the thickest tone of any of my humbuckers. Depends on the guitar of course...mine is in a semi hollwbody Hamer. Didn't sound as thick and buttery in a solid body Hamer. Lew

    Do you still have the Custom? Because if you grab an A2 and A5 magnet you can try the CC and C5. Two magnets would only cost you $10 and it is very well worth the investment. And if the Custom is just a little too hot for you, you might love the CC.

    Maybe I'll have to pick up another JB over the Custom. most seem to agree it has the biggest and widest tone.

    The one in Mr. Duncan's personal guitar, of course.

    You might be right about the JB. If you still have it though, you can put a ceramic magnet in it and try what is CLOSE TO a Distortion.
