Planning a Carvin, could use some input

    I'm planning to order a Carvin LB76, and am wondering about pickup choice -- it's between their H50A Jazz-style humbucker and the RAD humbucker, which is almost the same pickup but in a radiused housing. On a 6, sometimes the highest string is weak sounding, so I was thinking that the radiused style might make that worse by having the magnet farther from the string than if the straight were used. The advantage to the radiused style could be playing comfort (pup can be used as a ramp) and possibly better balance on lower strings.
