Recommend me an awesome single coil neck pickup!

In need of a most excellent neck single coil for recording and live shows.

Looking for something fluidy with good output to pull off shred licks and hum-cancelling.

Currently have a Bare Knuckle trilogy suite in the guitar but its too noisy and not that hot.

The guitar is an Ibanez XTP700XH, so mahogany body and maple/walnut neck thru. Bareknuckle Aftermath in the bridge (subjected to change)

Not set on particular brand either. Thinking possibly an Injector Neck or Duncan YJM Neck.

Go for the dimarzio cruiser bridge in the neck, its a single coil but with more power like a humbucker. its also hum cancelling. if your not convinced look up anything by andy timmons, especially groove or die. is offline

Re: Recommend me an awesome single coil neck pickup!

If you want a single coil shred pickup, especially for the neck, i think the Duncan YJM would do the trick, as I'm listening to some Yngwie Malmsteen right now, it sounds pretty fluid and loud to me, and they're noise canceling. It's not a "classic" sounding single coil pickup, but it sounds like you're giving thing a proper shredding, so I'm guessing you're not going for a classic sound. In which case, that sounds like the one for you.

Toodles, Julz.
