I`m currently using a 59 with alnico 8 in the neck in my les paul custom.
While My Duncan Custom with alnico 8 in the bridge sounds killer, the neck pickup isn`t cutting enough ..It has too much of that typical round les paul sound in the neck that I don`t like.
I would like a more cutting neck pickup with more pick attack, more strat like. I know you can`t get it to sound like a strat, but more in that direction so to speak. I read many suggests the pearly gates in a les paul.
How is that one compared to a 59 ?
Other suggestions ?
