do the outputs have to match?

for example...

Humbucker from Hell - 226 (output)
Bluesbucker - 224 (output)

im wondering because im putting in new pups in my les paul...YES i have read the entire pickup help thread but i couldnt find this topic anywhere in it.
Rig:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top
Amp- Blackstar HT-60 Soloist
Digitech Rp355


I look like this-

Nope, they don't need to match

Typically the bridge is higher output than the neck. For one, the strings vibrate less over the bridge pickup so the output must be higher to compensate for that
The bridge is also more trebly and suited for higher gain playing, so the hotter output sometimes makes the pickup drive the amp more

Mostly what you want is an even volume level when you switch from the neck to bridge pickups, but you can fine tune that by adjusting the pickup height

You dont need to start a new thread, you should ask any questions you have in the wiring thread.
