You know, it depends on the guitar, but I could see a Dimarzio Bluesbucker being right up your alley...

I used one in a neck pickup for a sort-of-P90 vibe in an HSH superstrat, and it was awesome.

For a darker / warmer sounding guitar, I could see it being an awesome bridge pickup.

It has ceramic magnets, but asymmetrical winding... the slug is basically there for noise cancellation. For this reason, it keeps the output when you coil split. It takes gain really well.

For low output try Seth Lovers by SD.

I had one (bridge) in an 2017 LP Classic.
Pure magic and capable of Maiden, Metallica, but also early Clapton and AC/DC.
Regretfully sold the guitar to GC member

BUT:
I installed a set in 2015 Les Paul Deluxe and the magic was not there

For now, I ended up ordering these pickups;

  • Wolfetone Marshallhead
  • Vineham custom pickup (Entirely based on what I asked, Craig seemed to understand right away what I wanted)
  • Jalen Origin 78

Thanks for your recommendations! \m/

I give an A + for Vineham pickups also. His Rampage pickups may work for you also
