    PAFGAS can be distressing and expensive. ;)

    Yeah! :) The current HS Filtertron neck pickup, to my ears, is just like a vintage one. And the price (<$100) is right.

    I have one LP. a 97 LP Classic. Put a White uncovered Duncan 59 in it about 3 years ago and never looked back.
    Think I traded it for a Gibson 57 or something.
    The 59 does sparkly cleans to roaring distortion. Win win!
    I'm more of a T-Top tone guy for my SGs. I have an original 75 bridge in one and a JPPre72 from Rewind Pickups(http://www.re-wind.net/Buckers.html) in another.
    Both great pups!!

    With all due respect to the '57 with alnico IIs; I think that the '59 is more of "my" sound; doesn't it have alnico Vs?

    Meh. On a somewhat related note I just ordered a Pearly Gates for the neck position to go with a Black Winter in my PRS SE Custom 24. Somewhere between the Jazz and the 59' with a slight mids hump. The Black Winter is like a hotter Duncan Distortion but with more note separation and more magnetic flux/Gauss.

    T tops in the '78 SG are killer, they sing and howl just like the best Gibo pickups i ever heard.
