    I'd be interested in how the type of magnet effects the sound or tone. Do know one thing I hate brittle sounding pickups

    You really have to try them to know. Most large stores will let you return pickups if you don't cut the wire, so that gives you a chance to try em out.

    I like a ceramic pickup that is hot, but with a pretty flat EQ response, maybe a touch more upper mids for bite, but also that cleans up when the volume is rolled down with a little bit of that sag when you roll back the guitar volume on a dirty tube amp, so that its still expressive and not muddy or lifeless.
