    I was also thinking about using some better pups in this one,does any body have any suggestions what is best in a 12 string,I have no idea.
    PAF's or lower output HB's would be better, you need the clarity to come through. the higher the output the lower you will need to seat the pup. but its personal taste

    Like Andy said you want pickups with a bit of sparkle and clarity. So nothing hi-gain that will and too many extra harmonics when you already have the extra strings and octaves. Maybe something split-able.
