    So I got the Custom Custom for the bridge. Anyone have any suggestions for a neck pickup that would pair well with it?

    Like I said earlier, I went with a GFS VEH, but that's because I don't use the neck much and wanted something pretty decent for cheap.

    I am a big fan of the Duncan '59 in the neck position of my SG, though I use a Pearly Gates in the bridge on that.
    I'm just here.

    And yeah, F spaced is the way to go - usually - if a guitar has a Floyd Rose style bridge.
    Hey dudes!
    Yeah....JB, 59, Pearly Gates....all great SD's.
    I don't know how I feel about the PAF Pros....I like the gain, and saturation character, but man. ...I always found them extremely noisy....tons of Hum and hiss for a humbucker.?maybe they've refined them since I used them in the early 90's?
    I do really dig the Tone Zones though. Good noise floor, controllable, articulate, and full sounding. More the FUCK/EBMM Era tone if that's your thing.

    As others said, it also depends a lot on what type of amp you have.
    Like...if you have a high gain amp...there's no real point in going for a high output pickup like a PAF pro, or even a Tone Zone which I consider more med. High output.

    Modern high gain amps have soooo much gain now....and it nice thick, harmonically rich in most of them.
    All the SD' s mentioned above...the are much more moderate and are more reliant on the amps gain, and of course your playing style.
