(From the Seymour Duncan website) application Warm, moderate-output humbucker. Great for jazz, blues, classic rock and slide. description The Alnico 2 magnet and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Classic rock players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APH-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the '59, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable and no logo. complete setup Often the APH-1 is used in both neck and bridge positions. Or, in the neck with a higher output pickup like an SH-11 Custom Custom or SHPG-1b Pearly Gates for heavier rock or hotter blues sounds from the bridge position. guitars For brighter toned instruments. Works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

Crystal Clear Humbuckers
I can't tell you that these are the pickups for you, because every guitarist wants to have a particular sound and the particular pickups are key to that.  However, these are the model I use in my guitar:  cocobolo body, quilt maple top, maple neck, ebony fingerboard.  I wanted my pickups to accurately translate the warm and clear sound of my tonewoods into a clean and confortable sound.  These pickups do just that.  They are clear and bright in the bridge (no tinniness or overdrive) and clean and warm in the neck (no muddiness or dead spots).  I use these with 1 Meg pots and no tone pot with the ability to blend the sounds with a selector switch.  I can get a variety of creative tones with this configuration and all are clear and smooth.

I would recommend these to anyone who wants a clean tone that they can shape with effects or amplifiers after leaving the guitar.  And, these are Seymour Duncans, so you know they are going to last!
