Could anyone make a suggestion for passive pickups for mostly bluezy rock playing ?
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.
WCR's.......I won't buy anything else. I have them on
my R8 LP, Rossington SG & SRV Strat.
Sorry Maverick, it's an El Degas LP copy
+1 for WCR's. You may want to checkout Bareknuckle pickups also. He winds many different flavors.
WCR. I have Crossroads.
Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro's. I have them in two of my guitars.
Duncan Seth Lovers;real close to an original PAF.
+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.
WCR's goodwoods for me, I've got them in my R8 and they rip.
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.
