Alnico nailbomb for me as I find it mega versatile.  Had it in 2 super strats.

i've tried a lot of their pickups and so far i always seem to go back to their Stockholm p90. its so fat and powerful. its great for a full, smooth  overdriven rock tone. the juggernaut is probably a close second because its just so unique and versatile but its not as full as the stockholm.

Mules! Brilliant cleans, complex tones, almost 3D, superb genuine 59 PAF-neckpickup, very musical in between sound, articulate, dynamic, just georgeous. They can handle loads of gain with authority (no mud). They kill in a mahogany guitar.
Mules, VHII, Crawler, MM's, IT's, BG50's.

Right now it's my Crawler bridge, yesterday it was probably my Rebel Yell set and the day before that It was probably my alnico Nailbomb set! Not that I'm fickle - it's just that they are all good.

Juggerset.  I love the rich, beautiful cleans, tight rhythm, and phat leads.  The biggest thing is the feel, it's just so on.  It's chewy and thick, with bite, and great sustain.  It's positively addicting!

The Rebel Yell B / VHII neck is pretty much almost equal if not equal.  I really like the A-Bomb / Rebel Yell N combo too but there's just something about those Juggernauts.  I doubt there is a bad BKP at all and I bet they are all awesome in one way or another. 

Juggerset in a Super Strat.  Hard Maple neck, Rosewood board, 25.5 scale, soft maple body with poplar wings. LFR system.  Bolt on neck.  5 way super switch, B Series, inner coils, BN series, outer coils, N series.  500k volume straight to jack, no tone.

Rebel Yell B / VHII n in 24.75 scale bolt on mahogany neck, rosewood board, solid mahogany body / direct mount pups.  3 way switch with 500k push pull tone pot and 500k RS GUitarworks superpot (volume).  Coil tap.

A-Bomb / RY n in Les Paul Standard.  (swiss cheese body)   500k pots 50s style wiring PIO caps.

Haven't tried them all to fully know but at the moment its the Nailbomb, have an alnico in one Les Paul, and a Ceramic in another, both bridge position. F**k me its got some balls! Did first show with a newly installed C-bomb in my main band guitar (switched out Aftermath) and it has made it sound a lot better. Not that the AM was bad or anything just too middy and clunky. Next time I play I have to give a warning to the audience, extreme beefiness present, proceed with cautiion!

I think the Nantucket bridge just edges out the Blackguard 52 bridge and Apache neck for me. It snarls, it barks, it cleans up and twangs, it's a great vintage single coil but with a bit extra pick up.

Yeah, they all are fine in their own way. I'playing my Crawler loaded HSS-strat much, I like the VHII in my ash strat for some songs, but if I could only take one guitar for a gig, it would be my Mules loaded St. Blues Mississippi Bluesmaster. Bec you can play clean stuff, jazz, funk, pop, blues, bluesrock, rock and even metal with Mules.
Mules, VHII, Crawler, MM's, IT's, BG50's.

What does it do best?  :evil:

Any thing rock/metal related as far as im concerned havent tried the nailbomb neck yet though so but im thinking about rectifying that very soon.

Alnico Nailbomb, because it just does so many things very good.

Haven't tried all pickups though!
