Duncan JB opinions and alternatives

How does this pickup sound clean?  Also, is there a Dimarzio "version" of it?  I love my Dimarzio 58 and 61.  Thanks!
I had the JB installed in the neck position of my SG, and it sounds great.  Very warm sound both clean and dirty - maybe because it's not supposed to be a neck pickup, but whatever. 
I'm very happy with my JB in the bridge of a maple/rosewood neck, black korina body tele. It sounds as good as any other bridge humbucker to me ears. Don't be fooled though, it's not the fattest sounding pickup ever. It cuts through.

Keep in mind, I'm on the neck pickup 90% of the time.
