Alright, I think it's time to swap out the pick-ups on the ol' Lester.

I have already decided what bridge pick-up I want: Seymour Duncan SH-4.

But I would like some suggestions for the neck pick-up. I'm looking for a really smooth, rolling sound from the neck. Stuff similar in quality to Radiohead. So any suggestions for a really smooth yet vibrant neck pick-up would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! :D

Well, before even looking at the seymour duncan website, I was thinking a "jazz" or "59" for the neck. Then, at the SD site, that is exactly what they recommend.

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Duncan JAZZ would be my suggestion.
