Thinking of installing one of these two sets in a Les Paul copy. I'm generally familiar with the 36th anniversary, as I had a bridge model once. I initially purchased it for an SG, but found it to be way to bright. Once I switched it to a LP type guitar, it sounded great. Sadly, that guitar is no longer with me. Anyway, after switching between countless pickups over the last 20 years, I still don't know much about magnet types, but it looks like Alnico 2 humbuckers and I get along well. These two sets seem to be the most reasonably priced after market options. While I really like the 36th anniversary, the SD Alnico II Pro seems to be a much more popular pickup. Anyone know how they compare? Have experience with both? I play mostly in cover bands these days (anything from the Tom Petty to the Foo Fighters to Pearl Jam). So, need a versatile set - good clean sound, but something that distorts well, also. The guitar these are going into appears to be mahogany, but I'm not really sure. Thanks!
