Humbucker, personally :)

You should have given people the chance to write in new ones - because there are a lot more than that!

depends... putting humbuckies on a strat is like committing murder. and putting single coils on a les paul is just the same...

Both. Im still waiting for a guitar that outputs both. Both are required for music

@JazzMaverick Yeah i know, but these are the three main groups. these are just categories. like under Humbucker you got alnico and ceramic magnets, Seymour Duncan's, Gibson's or EMG's and so on.

In my Les Paul, I got a 500T humbucker at my bridge and a 496R at my neck, both ceramic magnets. i wouldn't change them for the world, they sound amazing! But eventually i want to hook up a coil split on my 496R. Because that Single-coil sound is essential to me cause i like to switch from blues to rock a lot.

EMG's all the way. Playing anything is else is just not the same. D-Activators (or whatever they are called) come close. Favorite set up is, EMG 60 in the neck and an EMG 85 in the bridge.


Rock on!

um...Arn't P-90 Single coiled pickups just in the humbucker size and form factor?

I like single coils because they seem to have a better treble end, but my gretsch has humbuckers they have a lot of bandwith compared to my epiphone dot. My vote is humbuckers for now.

Coil tapping. Two in one, push for humbucker, pull for single coil.

I have this on my Ibanez. It's pretty damn useful for quick changes in tone.
My opinion on pickups, i love EMG's! Have the active single coils (EMG SA's) on my strat to get a lovely Gilmourish sound.
