    Re: LP Bridge Humbucker

    59's are great for capturing the straight tone of the instrument. I like JB's for Pauls. If you back off the volume they still maintain that dignified "up your ass" attitude!

    I haven't tried a Custom, but I can compare the C5 and JB. They're both bright enough to warm up a LP. The strengths of the JB are its growly and singing solo tone and the incredible amount of harmonics. I prefer the C5 for cleans and for rhythm. I found the JB to be a bit too harsh clean, and the C5 has more bass, very tight which is great for rhythm. The C5 also has a great singing solo tone, but less harmonics. The harmonics are still great, but pretty much any pickup has less than the JB.

    Besides the JB I hear the C5 and the Custom are good choices with the 59 in the neck. How do these 2 compare in sound on a lp. The LP tends to be dark. Should there be a bright pickup on the bridge.

    Good advice T G S. Hey dune, ..take a listen to some clips of the 59, JB, PG, and Seth.

    I got '59s in both positions right now but find the bridge PUP is not quite as responsive as I would like. This weekend I am changing to a JB. I decided on the JB after trying a buddy's guitars, one with a JB in the bridge and the other with a Pearly Gates. I decided the JB ability to pickup even the slightest pinch harmonic was what I was looking for.

    Bottom line is tryout the different pickups and choose the one that suits you.

    I have a Seth Lover / 59n combo in my LP and I love it. The SL has lots of definition and character, with a PAF style tone, but not too bright.
    It has the a2 magnet so it's a little bit agressive, but not compressed sounding, like a high output pickup. It has an "open" sound which is great for classic rock.
    The SL/59n center position is sweet too.

    How do you think the BBQ in an LP sits in the band mix? I love the BBQ in all my guitars but I am not totally thrilled with it in my LP up to this point. Maybe I need more time with it.
