Pickups are a personal choice, like guitars. My choice is the JB. But, a guitar with a Black Winter came into my place for a setup, and I was impressed. Like a JB, with more pronounced mids. A nice pickup. I might get one to put in one of my guitars.
The Black Winter in bridge is one of the best and versatile humbucker on the market imo. It cleans up nicely when rolling down the volume pot and sounds very, very good split too.
Because it has really high output I developed a "low output" mod (L-Pad, voltage divider circuit).
Volume drop is about 6db, but pickup still sees same load (2x500k pots).
This is my main tone. And the standard output now acts like a 6db (passive) boost.
