    I can't help with your dilemna without more info.
    FYI: Duncan is a brand (Seymour Duncan), humbucking is a type of pickup. Many manufacturers, including Seymour Duncan, make humbuckers. Some Duncans are humbuckers, some aren't.

    Are they actual Seymour Duncan pickups or 'Duncan Designed' (which aren't as good)? Also what's the price differential?
