Sure, I use a DD and just roll the guitar volume back a bit and it cleans up real nice.

^^^^^^

+1 Roll the volume knob down and just about any guitar will "clean up".

Or at least all the guitars I have do anyway.

Are you looking at Duncan or Dimarzio pickups?

For a Duncan, I'd say the Custom, and if you don't like it, swap the magnet for something else.

Like I said, I'd go with the Custom. Great cleans and it still gets some nice grind to it with distortion. It covers a lot of bases and gives you more power than a 59. And, changing magnets is easy, we can walk you through that if you decide you want to give it a go.

As far as neck pickups, I'm less picky about those, especially single coils. Also, you don't have to have a really hot neck pickup for it to match well with a hotter bridge pickup, because it will pick up more string vibration.

But, before you do that, have you adjusted the stock pickups? If you haven't that can make a big difference.

I gotta say you're right on TS! I've got a Duncan Custom in my M-II and it is the shiz. I have it paired with a Duncan SSL-4 Quarter Pounder single. Over time I'd tried four different pups in the neck and this was by far the best setup.

With a screw driver...what he's talking about is raising or lowering the pickups with the mounting screws.
