    I have a Les Paul futura. The neck pickup has replaced with a Seymour duncan firebird. What pickup would you put in the bridge? I've also got a triple shot ring so it can be coil split. So I'd need something that would work in this application

    Either a P-Rail, or a 59/Custom Hybrid. The P-Rail would be super versatile and the 59/Custom is a *great* bridge pickup that sounds amazing split. Both are awesome with the Triple Shot rings.

    I guess it depends on how hot you want/need it. Me, I would put some kind of distortion class pickup in there.
