Sure a JB and 59 are great pickups, very clear and beefy for the JB and the 59 or Jazz is very smooth with a great warm tone to them. But... that is pretty far from a Slash tone pickup, so I would definitely leave the Probucker Custom Slash approved in my Slash guitar. But hey... that's just me. I definitely would not plug in the guitar, play a few chords, then change them out. I would give them a chance for sure and put the guitar through its paces for a week or two.
That's exactly what i did man! I don't regret it one bit either. I got this slash playing and sounding great. I also put the Klusons and Faber bridge kit in this guitar as well. With the org custom pro buckers the neck was muddy and the bridge was ok but nothing special. These SD pups really sorted that out for me. I notice that this slash is a warm sounding guitar to begin with so there is not doubt that trying a few diff pups in the guitar was going to have to be done to help things along. The pups out of the slash sound really well in my 50's gold top and prob live in that guitar till they quit working 30 yrs from now! I also like the pro buckers i have them in three of my epi pauls. I could of put SD in those guitars but i didn't... To each is own man.....
