i'll allow myself to reply here
having A/B-ed a BSB and a P2
a) clean, the jem offers way more versatility with the 5way. moreover, the evo's sound warmer, a tad rounder. though, the middle position on the jpm is priceless, crystal clear as everyone knows!
b) for soloing hmm... i like how the bridge evo is, this thing somewhat... "breathes". but i think i prefer the SS, it bites a little more. i love how clean it is "legating", yet powerful, aaah!
neck pickup, the AN wins hands down imo! smooth, clear, clean, like a sweet capuccino!
c) riffing, aah, JPM all the way! thats what i call CHUNK!! add a little mids to the amp, and you get some more crunch to the mute!
