It's time to pick out a bridge pickup for my Agile 3100 silverburst. I'm definitely going with nickel covered. The stock pickup is Alinico 5, very thin and bright sounding. Sure, I could swap some mags in there but I have some gift cards so I might as well buy the best pickup I can get. The neck is just fine stock, I'm just changing the bridge. Here are the 3100 specs:
To summarize: mahogany body/neck, ebony fretboard. 24 3/4" scale. I'm pretty sure unless you have a transparent finish you don't get a maple top for your 3100. If it does have a maple top it's only 1/16" thick. 500k alpha pots.
Look at my signature for gear, I play through a xxx combo. I tune to drop C# with 10-52 ghs boomers. My band is southern rock meets metal, similar to Mastodon, The Sword, Baroness. The first pickup that came to mind for me is a SH-5 Custom.
I've had experience with SH-14 Custom 5, Custom 8, EMGs, Blackouts, JB, JB8, Duncan Distortion in other guitars but this is my first LP style guitar so I'm hoping LP owners can steer me to the right choice.
