Pickups down to 2 choices......

Plus Top Dan

Recommended Posts

Dear Fellow Epiphoners,


I'm going to change the pups on my ES-339 and I want to keep the coil splitting so my choices needed to include the 4 conector wiring.


I am torn between...


Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates & Alnico 2


Seymour Duncan JB & Jazz


Both of these cominations get good reviews but I wonder if any of you have any specific opinions on them - specifically fiited in an ES-339 or similar.

I have the JB at the bridge on my 339 Ultra. I have owned the Pearly Gates before, and frankly I can't tell the difference - both are very good and similar sounding.


I find on semis that I get an acceptable tone out of pretty much any humbucker in the neck position, as long as it's set at the right height.
