I hear/read from his site about the BKP and Lundgren pickups.
Interested to try, but the pickups gonna cost a fortune ( compare to regular Dimarzio or duncans), So better to ask opinion before buying.

I have a problem with 'twang', it's slight buzzing because of my picking attack, and maybe the action of the guitar too.
this twang only get annoying when playing with distortions.

with bright pickups ( Duncan Distortion, dimebucker) the twang got worse.
with darker sounding pickups ( Duncan Parallel Axis Distortion, Tone Zone, Dactivator X) the twang is still under tolerance.
so far, I think the PATB2B is the best for me. It's just got the right amount of EQ to compensate the twang, and the level of gain is perfect too. Tone Zone is OK, but not really my taste. Dactivator X has so much gain so the bass respond and resonance sometimes too much.. yeah + I'm not that kind of guy who loves to tweek the amp eq....

So I do realize, I'm looking for dark sounding pickup to compensate the twang.

BKP warpig is less treble, maybe it's a good choice.
Lundgren..? M6 maybe? what do you think?

So any opininion from the users of the mentioned pickups , please feel free to jump in.

PS : I'm not looking to replace any of the pickups from my existing guitars, but considering the right pickups for the very next guitar I'm gonna buy .. :)

Have you tried lowering the pickups? You can always compensate for gain elsewhere in the signal chain, but often if a pickup is too close to the string it can create some weird overtones.
