we need to know what amp you're running through first, depending on the amp, new pups may not even make but a tiny fraction of a change in your sound.

Stay away from the distortion Mayhem. I love them...but they are a very tone specific pup.
They get hot fast. On a scale from 1-10...they start to break up between 3&4.

This is in an Lp model...full mahogany body..

I have the Jazz JB Model in a Mahogany and Basswood guitar. They are very suitable for your needs. They come in the SD Hotrodded set....and will cover everything.

^i wouldn't use the hot rodded set when most his styles are of mid gain or lower, they're still pretty hot, and i know the JB in the bridge would make my cleans a lil too harsh and distort too early most of the time. the Jazz was pretty good on the cleans, but i still think he could do better.

'59 (SH1) or Seth Lover (SH55)?

I don't think the Custom 5 and the Custom would be great on the 335.

Don't be getting too hot of a pickup, or you're going to be fighting feedback all day long, hence the list I posted earlier.

Knowing which specific amp helps a lot... more so than the wattage of the amp.

However, the general rule for semi-hollows is not to use high output pickups, they tend to feedback like an infant cranked to 11.

Also, you want wax-potted pickups more so for hollow-bodies to minimize microphonic feedback as far as possible.
