has anybody had an experience with either of these pickups? or this particular combination? I'm thinking about swapping them in to replace my SD jazz/jb pickups. I just can't get the jb to distort the right way, and the jazz is too bland.

so you were wondering if these were the ones you want. what type of music do you play? and doesnt joe satriani use this combination
Satch used to use that combination but now he uses PAF Joe, Fred and Mo' Joe as his choice i believe. The one really famous on using the PAF Pro is the living legend Paul Gilbert. PAF Pro is quite versatile, tone will change if you make it as neck or bridge pickup.
