What can i replace my neck evo with?

I am thinking about swapping the evo in the neck position in my jem7vsbl as i am not that keen on the tone, i think it sounds to much like the bridge position except muddy and indistinct. I want some thing thats has a different sound to the bridge, something to give me a good bluesy sound but still clear and not muddy and with enough output to match with the bridge evo. the one's i'm thinking about are:

paf pro
air norton
air classic
breed
any help or other suggestions is greatly appriciated.

the regular norton would match the output of the evo better. for you, tho, i would recommend the fred or paf pro for the neck. norton is way fatter than both and has a tone that can easily become muddy if your settings aren't just right.

Do you think the Breed can become muddy on the neck ?

as i recall, the breeds were very warm in the jem7dbk i played, and that was in basswood. i think that your amp settings and the tone knobs will pretty much determine just how muddy your tone will get. when i was looking for pickups for my rgt3120, i actually considered the breed neck with a tone zone in the bridge for output reasons. i ended up with an air norton and air zone. if you look at the eq specs on both the air norton and breed, they are very similar. i personally don't have any problem with muddiness with my air nortons, but i use my amps(line6) and guitars generally different from most players. i actually like mids and treble along with a ton of low end. so it sounds warm and meaty, but with a good deal of presence. plus the line6 stuff i use has the hidden features that bring out the nuances of my playing...especially when using the soundiver program. so for me i have very little problems with mud.
