Any ways, for now, i am going with the Duncan A2Ps because i can get a GREAT deal on a set - hardly used.
- I didn't realise you hadn't made the connection.
In the "BKP fraternity" if you want "Angus", the no-brainer choice is the Riff Raff set. There are lots of folks who think the RRs will only do Angus because of the name, like they think the Apaches will be weedy because of the Hank reference - nope in both cases! The names are only vague reference points.
In the BKP "vintage hot" PAF-type range you've got:
Stormy Mondays (reference to Allman Brother's rendition of said song) - aimed at anyone after the earlier 50s PAF vibe.
Mules (reference to Gov't Mule) - late 50s to early 60s PAF
Riff Raffs (AC/DC song) - if you're after the idea of mid/late 60s to 70s "patent received" humbuckers.
They're none of them copies, just aiming at those sorts of flavours.
I can get Angus tones out of both Riff Raffs and Mules (and Mississippi Queens, incidentally, one of their humbucker sized P90 range) - for my money it's all down to how you set your amp and how you attack the guitar. I've not tried Stormy Mondays, but I strongly suspect you can do it with those as well.
Right at the moment, the most "Angus-like" tone I'm getting is a new ES-335 with the stock Classic 59s in. (It seems to do Malcolm as well, both Youngs in one geetar!
