    Default black beauty

    Here I go Again: what configuration would work best in a 3 pickup black beauty Epiphone:

    59N/jazz middle (coil tapped)/ 59B

    Jazz B /59 neck/sh-14 custom 5

    jazz/jazz/ 59B

    Nice warm clean tones. I love the jzz coiled tapped so i think the middle location would be ideal to compliment the bridge or the neck or on its own.

    Here we all go again.

    Same question, different wording. Hence, pretty much same answer, different wording.

    If you like the SH-2 Jazz as your neck PU on the Epi 3PU LP, it makes sense to use that. For the middle, I suggest something with more output. This will allow you to set the middle HB at a lower height but still get decent output. For the bridge position, I would want something a little bit ruder than the Jazz or the '59. I would choose the Pearly Gates.

    Alternatively, if you want a centre pickup that looks like a humbucker but sounds like a single coil, check out the DiMarzio Bluesbucker. If you mount this pickup with its screw pole coil nearer the bridge, the combination of coil-tapped BB and Jazz should make a passable Strat noise.
