hey guys, im upgrading an ash hss strat, switching out the pups. i think ive found the pups i want individually, but not sure how they would go together in the same rig. the bridge humbucker, im looking at a bkp nailbomb. reasonably high output (15, i think), modern tone. for the singles i m looking at suhr fl's, more vintage vibe, medium output (6.5). very stratty. on their own, ive loved what i have heard., but they are very different pickups. should i have concerns putting them into the same guitar?

thanks

do you need them to be the same output? isn't that kind of the point in going for different-spec pickups in the first place?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

well, i dont need them the same output, im more concerned with them being so different sounding (classic vs modern) that they may clash. and volume wise, id like them to be useable together.

What about the use of 500k pots (as normally recommended for HBs), won't they make the singles extra trebley?

Ibanez RG2550Z

Peavey Triumph 60

and that's it. done buying stuff. probably.

You can get modern and vintage tones regardless of output. If you're not going to make use of high-output (i.e. you're not using the pickups to push a valve amp harder; maybe you prefer to just turn the gain control up further, add a boost pedal, whatever) then you might as well get a lower-output pickup that will respond to your playing better. Lots of companies make pickups that have lower output with a modern tone. Hell, that's how DiMarzio make most of their money.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I suppose you could always toy with the pickup heights to solve possibl volume issues?
My gear:

Ibanez S5470-TKS with a BKP Nailbomb Bridge, Cold Sweat Neck, Trillogy Suite Middle single coil

even paf-type humbuckers have a fair bit more output than vintage output singles. Personally I'd just put up with it, if you ask me it equals more versatility, not less. you can mess with the pickup heights, too, as gego said.
