    Pickup suggestions needed Axis SS

    I would like to change the stock humbuckers in my Axis Super Sport to something sweeter and cleaner for use for blues, jazz, and country music. Any suggestions? Seymour Duncan's pickup selector suggests the '59 models, and even JB bridge.

    I'd think P90s of some sort that fit a humbucker route. (A few out there.)

    I have a Dimarzio Humbucker from Hell in the neck of one of my Axis guitars. It delivers a hot, but single coil tone (in humbucker form). Definitely check it out. I actually have a reverse zebra HFH for sale too! I had an extra from an older guitar. That with the EVH neck are the perfect pair.
