I picked up the husk of an Aria Pro II RS-600 and due to some damage I'm going to do a swimming pool rout and use a brass plate for the pickups. I'm going with a P-90 for the neck, a Strat for the middle and a humbucker for the bridge position. I'm at a loss for the humbucker. I want something that blends well with the mid pickup, and sounds good when the coil is tapped for twangier stuff. I'm thinking of a Lollar Imperial, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm not a big fan of Duncan JB's or DiMarzio Super Distortions.

What do you like? What would you suggest?

Perhaps a Duncan 59 custom hybrid pickup. Coil splits to the Duncan custom coil which should have some heft. Other thought is the Fralin unbucker, which also has the one stronger coil for the split.
