  • Pickup Advice

    Where to begin? I have a GMP pawnshop, essentially 25 1/2 scale les paul. I love the warm crunch of the Custom Custom in my 24 3/4 scale Gibson style guitars. However, the Custom Custom in this GMP doesn't do it for me. It had the mids but they weren't as warm and crunchy, possibly due to the 25 1/2 scale. I tried a C5 and like it, but I wish it had more mids, not to the extent of the Custom Custom, but more mids with a warm crunch. I haven't played a JB in 12 years because I used to find them shrillish through Marshalls, which is why I liked the Custom Custom so much. Now I play Mesa's. My question is this, what Duncan (or Dimarzio if necessary) has the rich open tone of the C5 but with more crunch/mids? Would this be the JB? The Dimarzio Breed? Tone Zone? Any suggestions for warm crunch in and Alnico magnet pickup for hard rock?

      A friend of mine swears by the Breed! but, in the right guitar the JB will do what you want.

        The Custom sounds like what you're looking for, although it has a ceramic mag.

          definetly try the custom. it will only cost you about 4 bucks. just get a ceramic magnet and swap it with the A5 in your C5. if you don't liek it, you can just swap it back. one of the reasons why the custom series rules!!! you really can't go wrong.

            The custom has plenty of bass mids and highs, with the right balance, so maybe it's just what you're looking for. Use the magnet swaps!
