    I agree 100%! It also looks like you're on the right track- The Custom and the Jazz are a very nice combination. I was not impressed with the JB either- it sounded a little anemic in my Jackson Dinky as well. If the pups don't sound good, you can always swap them out on Ebay! Good luck!

    First of all, this guitar kicks some serious ass. It put all the Les Pauls I've owned to shame, to horrible shame no less. Anyway....

    It has a '59 in the neck and a JB in the bridge. Neither one I'm crazy about. I'm a big fan of the Distortion bridge pickup, but I have one in my ibanez already. So I'm thinking about the Custom. I need a crunchy bridge pickup. The JB sounds more like a fart than crunch. Does the Custom have any advantage over the Distortion? If not, I might just put another DD in this guitar, but I'd rather have an axe that doesn't sound the same as my other one.

    as for the neck, I LOVE the jazz neck pickup, I might put one in here unless one of you guys want to recommend a neck pickup that worked out real well for you in a Les Paul style guitar.
Working...
