    Hello all!

    I currently have a SX SPJ-62 and I just purchased the Reverend 8.7K p-pass pickups. So I’m looking to replace the j pickup now. I was reading a few threads and I read that the best type of J pickup on a P/J combo is hum canceling. Can anybody recommend a J pickup that would go nicely with the 8.7 Reverends and is also hum canceling? I play hard rock if that helps any.

    All responses are appreciated.

    I've got a Rumblefish PJ that came to me with a DiMarzio Model J installed in the bridge position. I like it a lot - it is hum cancelling and matches well with the Reverend P. I like the combo better than the stock pickups that are in my other Rumblefish PJ. So much so that I plan on eventually replacing the Reverend J pickup with a Model J in the other Rumblefish as well.
