does anyone know if the SH-8 invader and the SH-2n would sound good together. Is the invader any good? I'm looking to have a very high output pickup in the bridge, and a good clean sounding one in the neck. I play everything from indie to funk to metal. I already have a set of EMG's in a different guitar. I was looking for a good set of Seymour Duncans. I was also looking at the active Livewire Metal LW-HMET. Is that any good? and would i need another active pickup to go along with it?
any help is appreciated. thanks

Have you ever used an invader? You should REALLY play one before getting one because they have a very unique harmonically rich sound...i know a lot of people that hate them ..and a lot of people that like them

I would personally go with the SH-4/SH-2....it does metal and everything else under the sun

yeah, SG is right, you have to have great hand control to keep the string noise in check, which isn't neciserly a bad thing.

I have a pair of invaders in my Les Paul, and I like 'um, but you should try 'um first

4, 5, or 14 for bridge and 2n or '59 (sh-1) for neck. any combination of these tends to be well-balanced, it all depends on tonal taste and each pickup can do most any style.
sh-8 is a love/hate pickup. as previously mentioned, it's very rich in harmonics. also, it's EXTREMELY articulate. you screw up, everyone will know. so make sure you're d@mn good before you install one.
