    The Gibson 57+? It's fatter sounding than a JB, drives amps well, and still has good clarity.

            Have you tried playing around with the height on the 498t?

                That was one of my thoughts, and also I would concur that the JB may indeed give you the additional articulation you want. It seems to be a rather versatile pickup for various genre's as well.
                A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.

                Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
                I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

                    498T is already a pretty bright pickup in my mind, the JB is definitely the next level.
