Which would you prefer for a Les Paul in the bridge position? The neck pickup is a SD Seth Lover and that ain't going anywhere. ;)

I just installed a set of Bill Lawrence L-495's in mine. Read the review in the Product Review section.

If it's between the P-94 and the Armstrong, get the P-94 and don't look back! Just my humble opinion of course, but I think the P-94 is far superior to the armstrong offering. Don't get me wrong...the Armstrong is certainly a fine pickup, but the P-94 is several steps up the ladder in tone.

I've had P-94s in two Les Pauls (one sold, one still owned) and they're awesome. Never used the BL's, no reason for me to - I love the P-94.

Thanks guys, do you think the P-94 will be a good match for the Seth Lover neck output wise? Alternatively I could move the Seth Lover bridge pickup to the neck for greater output (currently my Les Paul has Seths in bridge and neck--I love it in the neck but the bridge I'm seeking something with the mids and articulation of a p90).

Don't forget the Rio Grande Bastards. I have a set of Bastard/Fat Bastard in a Heritage and they sound really good.

Of what I read, they are very HOT. I'm not looking for something with that kind of output.

The electric guitar pickup is the single most inconsistently loved/hated part of the whole signal chain. Mind blowing!

I do like Seymour Duncan's I've had in the past, maybe I should jump on the phatcat. If I listen to every negative comment I hear on every product, I'd never buy anything. Haha. ;)

Thanks, Mr Couch.
:D

Dr Z Z28 is my favorite. I also have a Mesa Blue Angel which is pretty cool. Considering a Kingsley Deluxe 30 or a Dr Z Maz Jr down the road too.

Mr. taco,

The Fat Bastard IS hot, but the regular Bastard seems about in line with what I think a P-90 should sound like. I have not tried the Phat Cats, but have heard that some folks like them. Just another option.

If you've got your heart set on P-94s, they show up used here once in awhile, and on ebay.

They're not P-90s, but have you looked into the TV Jones Filtertron style pickups that go into a humbucker hole? I'd really love to try them in the Heritage!

Filtertron! I'll look into that. Thanks.
