    Duncan Antiquities are wonderful in my opinion, I have had great luck w/ both their humbuckers and P-90's. Great sound and not as expensive as a lot of pickups.

    +1 for WCR's. You may want to checkout Bareknuckle pickups also. He winds many different flavors.

    +1 for WCR's. I have one Fillmore bridge p/u on my Les Paul copy and it completely delivers the fat punchy classic sound I was after. I will likely be putting other WCR's in at leat one other guitar soon.

    There are many fine options: WCR, Lollar, Wolfetone, Voodoo all make very good pickups.

    Excellent suggestions all around. Any of these would be a great choice for the El Degas.

    A few others to consider that won't break the bank are Dimarzio PAF Classics and Armstrong 12 Pole. Dave Plummer, Mick at Manlius and Benny at Truetone will wind you some beauts at great prices too.
