    Default Best Blues/Classic Rock/Opeth Humbuckers ever

    Yeah.. Humbuckers, for a Mahogany body. I say Opeth here, because outside of Classic Rock and especially blues and jazz, Opeth is like.. the most metal I play (they have really purdy clean sounds which my amp is good for, so the humbuckers cant be too strong, or ceramic) and they have really smooth, warm distortion (which my amp hits at only about 5 Gain, and.. a volume higher than 5), and really good pinch harmonics.

    Apparently, Mike from Opeth (not that I've ever heard any of their stuff) uses the Duncan Full Shred. Works fine for classic rock of all sorts, maybe a tad edgy for blues.

    You really should hear some of their stuff, it's great. Full shred hmm.. haha it just kinda threw me off because I was thinking "Shred" or "Metal" when I see it.. As for too edgy for blues.. there are two main types, for smooth blues I use the neck, when it gets edgier and if I want to kick it texas style I use the bridge.

    Try "A Fair Judgement" by Opeth it's a good start.

    I have to recommend the original PAF pups that Jimmy Page used on his 1959 Les Paul. IMHO, the Duncan 59 Humbucker is just as good and available at your local Duncan dealer.

    Timmy, full shred neck is EVERYWHERE on damnation. I used it extensively in my jackson before i installed emgs. GREAT pickup for anything in my opinion, but the amp does play a role in that. Laneys are typically dark, so mr mcz could have a point. What amp?
    Guitars: Jackson Black Flametop SLSMG FullShred(A8)/FullShred w/Tonepros bridge
    Fernandes Revolver Pro 7-String, BKP Painkiller(A8)
    Amp: Laney VH100R and Splawn 2x12 cab
    Effects: John Spina modded SD-1, Morley Bad Horsie Wah, MXR 10-band EQ (OLD version)
    Recording/Practice: Line 6 Guitar Port

    Tis a Traynor Blue (Sort of.. brighter than Marshalls to my ears.. but what to my ears know..), Supprisingly, they dont use much gain, I can get it on my boost channel with the gain on only half way up, I just need something.. tighter, and clearer.
