I've never been one to mess around with the pickups I usually am happy with the ones built in so I don't know much about. But I'm in search of 2 for a custom solid body guitar I'm building. Most important is the clean sound. A full clean sound, but of course I want it to pull off distortion. I was looking at the PRS Tremonti ones. Any suggestions? Oh by the way looking for sounds like Breaking Bennjamin, Creed, etc. Thanks.

Okay, so basically you want everything.

PAFs with covers. Get your dirty from pedals or a high-gain amp.

OR

Pick something like a DiMarzio X2N and wire it for series/parallel.
Series for mean, Parallel for clean.

2nd'ed the PAFs, great cleans (which you seem to value more than the distortion) yet can still give a nice dirty tone

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
