Hey guys!

I mostly use two guitars with my band and on both guitars I have a pair of Seymour Duncan Sh2 Sh4. I'm really happy with both of them. Lojo, the luthir who build my custom guitar offered me to construct a second guitar and I'm now thinking on pick ups. The guitar will be similar to this one that he's done:

I could go for the same pick ups but I was wondering if you know any other good options with similar "power".

For the bridge maybe the ALTERNATIVE 8 from Seymour Duncan. Similar power but Alnico 8 magnet which gives a very organic sound that isn't grainy or fizzy at all. I had one put in my old Gunslinger and really loved it. Pairs well with a 57 in the neck. smile.gif

Separate windings on coils is what I like most on a bridge humbucker, thats why I kept using dimarzio. But sometime ago SD released 59/custom, I have yet to try it but from the video's its uniqe breakup is noticeable like the dimarzio stuff.

With such coil-winding, powerchords sound bigger and when soloing some finger/pick dependand tonal sounds (tone from fingers) is much easier.

I would go for a set of 'vintage' output Lindy Fralin or Jason Lollar humbuckers.

Or, 'bucker in the bridge and two Strat pkups in the middle and neck positions.

I'd look at the Bare Knuckle Rebel Yells

They are the Steve Stevens signature pickups

The Les Paul player in this band uses them

I would have problems replacing those two. Those are one of the brightest pickups outthere - the react nicealy for a voluem roll off and the have this awesome dynamics response. I would stick to those because it would let the second guitar sound different because of the woods only and it will keep a kind of dynamics response you are used to.

From the other hand if you would like to make your second guitar sound totally opposite, I advice to try some cermic magnet pickups (yes, for neck position too). The have totally warm sound and high output. In my case a ceramic magnet pickup with metal cover makes a clean tone of 24 fret guitar sound much more like 22 fret guitar and this really makes sense when I play in a project based on the clean tone mostly


Of course that's just how I feel it works in my gear smile.gif
