Help Me Spend Money

Hey all
I'm having a hard time deciding what pickups to put in my new LP.

I think I have it narrowed down to

Crossroads

http://www.wcrguitar.com/crossroads_clips.html

or

BetSet

http://www.wcrguitar.com/betset_vid_clips.html

My main hesitation with the Crossroads is I already have a Crossroads in the neck of one LP and I want to try a different set, but the Crossroads sound so good to me in the clip I almost don't care

According to Jim Wagner, the big difference between the two is "On the Crossroads, the bridge is wound slightly MORE than the neck, as compared to the BetSet where it it wound slightly less than the neck ."

He also describes the BetSet bridge pickup as almost Tele-like.

I was also considering the Moore/Green set, but there are no clips of those, although he describes them as Darkbursts out of phase.

Hmmm, a disappointing 3 votes, maybe next time I will ask which pickup set is overrated.
