      59 or APNII. They are both beautifully smooth pickups and will get you that searing sustain with a nice fat bottom end. 59 is definetely more bassy and I've noticed that the APNII is a little smoother. Can't go wrong with either!

        The 59 is also more aggressive IMO.

          I have guitars with both APNII and 59n. Both are great. My LP has the APN and it's really warm and smooth with lots of bass. the 59 however has a really nice vintage tone to it, that will scream when pumped. the APN seems to have a fatter less harsh tone (that's why I picked it). I love to solo with it and get nice warm sounds on those higher frets. But I would say that with a Custom bridge and your penchant for "screaming leads" I would go 59. It has more top end than the APN and less bottom, so it won't get super fat when distorted to the max.

            Kaknight says 59 less bottom, Guitarist says 59 is defnitely more bassy. It's amazing how we all hear different. Guitar also plays a huge role. I guess when I say screaming leads I don't mean speed, more like hanging sustain and fat.

              It's all up to preference, I don't think there really is any right or wrong. I've tried the 59n it's got a lot of bass...one might even consider it "boomy". It's a nice, TIGHT bass though. It's plenty clear. Sounds BEAUTIFUL combined in the middle position with the Custom, you get this chimy, sweet top and this wonderfully warm, full bottom.

              The Jazz is balanced a lot like the 59 but with more highs and clarity, and less of the bass. If you liked the overall character of the 59 but found it too boomy, this would be the way to go. Less bass when combined with the bridge, but you still get a very sweet clear sound. Just less bottom.

              I've never tried the APH-1. I'd certainly like to though.

              If you picked a neck pup you didn't like, there's always the 21-day exchange policy. And apparently, from what people have been saying, the Jazz and APH-1 are actually pretty much the same with a different magnet. So, if you didn't like the Jazz and thought you might like the smoother sound of the Alnico II Pro, you could just swap out the Alnico 5 bar for an Alnico 2.

              You could buy you magnets here....

                In my experience, I would say 59. Not your only option though. PG's could do in a cinch, but I personally prefer the 59.

                  Looks like a Custom and 59 so far then.
