IMO Air nortons are the best neck pup in any solid bodied guitar. THey also blend very well with a TZ

The AN isn't as 'think-n-creamy' as many neck pickups... has a bit more definition and less fuzzy warmth. If you want the warm & fat thing, the Breed does a great job. IMO, for your purposes, the AN may fit the bill better though.

I gotta go breed/TZ on this one,I love evo's,which may be worth checking out too ...

Of course,you can't go far wrong with a Paf-Pro either,The choice as they say is yours ;-)

I can't help but wonder about some of the ToneZone suggestions. I've never liked it. To my ears it was way to weak.

I like EMG's personally, and the EVO.

Here's an Idea... find yourself an old F2 to put in the neck position. It's got a great lead bite and never sounds muddy at all. I should know, I have 4 of them

Zakk Wylde uses a neck pick-up.

I pretty sure he's metal.

So does Yngwie.

The smiley face after the comment indicates sarcasm. Y'know, like a joke.

Oh and Zakk does play some metalish sounding stuff- what do you mean you're only "pretty sure" he's metal? He's definately got metal going on! :P
