    Dimebuckers? Recommending hot pickups for someone who wants to play blues and jazz based stuff?

    I'd lean towards alnico pickups.

    @ustdjohnny: Your idea seems to be good. Sorry I can't help you on sourcing those pickups though.

    Thanks, guys. @angel, I think i'll give Dimebuckers a miss, because simply metal is not my cup of coffee. @hundredthone, very nice Eric Johnson cover. Where did you find the backing tracks?

    The JB might be too hot for your needs. You would be better off with a Pearly Gates or a 59. Another killer SD pickup that goes under the radar is the PATB-3 Blues Saraceno. Overall,stick with vintage voiced, under or around 10K DC resistance pickups(like the ones mentioned above). In the Dimarzio camp, I would have recommended a Virtual PAF neck/Virtual Hot PAF bridge but they are discontinued now.
