    I've got one of those going in the neck of my GMW right now. I love the Tone Zone / Air Zone 2 hum set up, hope this sounds as good.

    I just checked there but I didn't see any that fit the single coil slot.......
    I'll look harder but I want a bucker without doing ANY mods........

    Seymour Duncan Lil 59's a safe bet.

    I just put a JB Jr. in my Strat last night, and I am blown away by the sound so far. It was too late to really crank it, but the humbucker's voice is really sweet.
    Can't wait to hear it through my OCD and Brownie.

    I think the Dimarzio clips blow chunks. Most of the med to hotter pickups are soaked in gain and wah! Duncans clipsOTOH, played very similar to each other. I think they even used the same guitar. Much less glamorous but way better for comparison.
