A J custom with Suhr pickups, who?

Has anyone tried to place suhr pickups in a J custom? If so, does it sound "as good" as a regular Suhr?

I don't know about sounding "as good as a suhr" since that's a pretty subjective thing, but I've installed Suhr Aldrich in 2 J-customs and 3 RG3120s, and it was the best they ever sounded.

I had a Suhr Aldrich in the bridge of an old ESP Horizon III that I had. Alder body. Sounded awesome. Bright, sparkly, bitey, crisp and defined! If you're wondering if the pickups are worth trying, I say yes. I plan on getting a set to try in my JC sometime as well.

Subjective, of course. I took the 7V and 7+ out of my Modern 7 (currently sporting Duncans), but I've been loving the ML Standards in my Strat - Suhr definitely makes great pickups, and J Customs are generally very nice guitars.
