For those of you experienced custom guitar builders I have a question.
How do I go about picking the right pickups for my guitar.
I just dont know which ones to get I guess. I guess my question is, does it matter which ones I get. I know some are meant for neck positions and some for bridge positions. How do I know?

If you have any suggestions my guitar is set up for HSS and preferably playing a hard rock/metal/Joe satriani, etc. sound.

Heres a question for yuh

Can you mix and match different brands of pickups on one guitar?
Like a Passive EMG bridge with Seymour Duncan mid and neck?
