I'm looking for suggestions for Humbuckers that can be coil tapped, are high gain, not prone to feedback at high gain, and sound great. I know the last criteria is subjective, which is exactly what I'm looking for, your opinions. I'm open to all suggestions, any brand, any model, stock inventory or boutique, it's all fair game. When giving suggestions let me know what you like about the pick up, what kind of music you play with it, and what guitar you have it installed in. Also note if you use the pick up in neck or bridge position, or both.
The reason I'm seeking out suggestions is that I have a Ventura guitar, it's a Japanese made Les Paul copy, that I want to completely rewire. My friend's uncle is a garbage man and found it on his route and gave it to me (a constant reminder to never piss off the wife). I've had it for years and only used it as a back up, but I'm playing in a project working with individuals with Developmental Disabilities where my Ibanez Destroyer II doesn't have the appropriate look. I love the neck on the Ventura, I don't hate how it sounds, but it's got scratchy pots, and the stock PUs are noisy, prone to feedback and microphonic. I want to wire it using the Jimmy Page Les Paul wiring schematics I've found that uses DPDT push-pull volume pots for coil tapping both humbuckers, and DPDT push-pull tone pots for series/parallel and phase reversal of one PU. I figure if I'm going to swap out the pick ups I'll do a full rewire and give myself all the options I can. The previous person who wrote songs for this project did a lot of blues, I typically play heavier rock. So something that does well with high gain that can be scaled back by tapping the coils should suit my needs well.
Any suggestions are appreciated. I'd rather get some input here before going over to the guitar forums to endure a pissing contest.
