Perhaps throwing a '59 in the neck would be a good idea for the TS?

Indeed, or a Pearly Gates...I just wasn't quite sure as the post says "pickupS", but only mentions the Custom 5 by name. It absolutely nails those crunchy, ragged 80's rhythm tones, but it'll get into metal territory if you ramp the gain up and tweak your EQ.

If you have a Gibson SG Standard you have the 490 pickups which are pretty hot already and should easily get the sounds you have described. Nothing wrong with upgrading pickups if that's what you want to do. If its not a Gibson then I suggest Carvin M22 pickups. Amazing power, great cleans and punch, all wiring options, the best sustain out there.

Its the special, and the Tone is alright (ve played it through nice amps) but not really anything special. but i Will check out those Carvins, they arent to pricey are they?

The Carvin's are very reasonable. I'd recommend the M22V ($44.99) for the neck and the M22SD ($49.99) for the bridge. Sweet for clean and scorching distortion and sustain. All wiring options stock.
