Hey Guys, :)

I am about to buy a custom shop handmade guitar, and I already selected the Bridge Humbucker (Suhr SSH+) and Middle Single (Bare Knuckle mother's milk), but I have a dilemma with the Neck Pickup.

I actually reached to two options, the first is the "Seymour Duncan SHPG-1 Pearly Gates" and the second is the "Suhr SSV".

I'm want a very versatile guitar that will get me a sound from heavy rock to Jazz (actually more Jazz, and cause of that the Neck Pickup is very Important)
The guitar will be Mahogany body, Flame Maple top, Maple neck and Wenge fingerbaord (kind of Rosewood).

So which Neck Pickup are you recommend?

Thanks a lot guys,
Bar. :)

The Pearly Gates is really sweet, articulate and clear and can do hard rock as well as blues. I wouldn't do metal on it and if you want a warmer pickup I'd go with something like the Alnico II Pro.

I'd go with the Suhr - It splits well and combines well with a single coil. I've got one in a Classic T (With a cover).
