I am really enjoying the Seymour Duncan Whole Lotta Humbucker set. Neck and bridge are very appealing to me. After years of using underwound pickups for clarity, I got in a band with a great Tele player. I could not get that punch into the mix until the WLH. They push the amp harder, which works for me. They are also in the PAF zone. I have them in Two Les Pauls. View attachment 25338
Same here. After 20+ years of chasing tone with boutique pickups, I installed the WLH set in my 1999 R9 and honestly, the guitar has never sounded better. Done. Also - another fan of the Jazz neck here. I have it in my 1989 Les Paul custom with the JB in the bridge. The Jazz is definitely a zero mud neck bucker that is unfortunately named.

Well in Seymour's defense he originally named it the "John Milner" so if he already had his system set up with the acronym JM denoting the model, it left him with limited second options for the name.

In hindsight maybe "Just Magic" would have been better for marketing but hindsight is 20/20 ?

Nobody likes the Seth Lovers? I have those in 1 guitar and a Seth neck & 59 bridge in another. I seem to prefer the set of Seth's vs the Seth/59 combo.
Here! (Raises hand). I have a set of Seth's in my old Classic. The are very good choice for any Les Paul and a good choice for those that cannot afford the handwound expensive botique offerings.
