    I started to say Pearly Gates bridge, but then I realized Iíve gotten way more gigging mileage out of my Tele SD Broadcaster bridge.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    My answer has changed in the last year, but for now, it would be the Jason Becker Perpetual Burn. Killer pup. Great parallel and split too.

    Last few years for me it's been the Full Shred because it's not overly hot and in your face yet it still does it's thing for me very well, but prior to that it was a mix of Bill/Becky L500XL's and EMG-81's.

    For me it's the JB. It's my go-to. It can be picky about what guitar it's in, but in the right guitar, it can't be beat.

    Hot Pearly Gates in Bridge


    But dang Dave - tough question. Custom was a very close 2nd - even though I like a Distortion more, and think a 59/Custom would be a better choice.

    I have no idea. 95 % of my playing I use two singles either in parallel or series...

    For me, the black winter is great.

    If I had to choose active: fishman fluence classic. Itís a JB and a Seth and a single all in one.

    SH-9 Silverbird. I absolutely love this pickup! It has amazing tone, great clarity, articulation and just enough output to make it dangerous. I want to buy all these i can find and/or have MJ make me a few from the Custom Shop.

    For neck pickup, i would chose the APH1 (especially the NJ versions). Love the think, bluesy tone it offers. With that said, the Jazz can really sound amazing in certain guitars as well.

    P-Rails for the tonal variety.

    If P-Rails had never been invented, it would be the Custom.

    Black Winter. I play a lot of metal, but also a lot of non-metal, and the Winter covers so much ground without sacrificing quality.

    EMG 60 with a volume pot and a tone pot. Can be put in neck or bridge (maybe middle?).
