Go for a second '59 in the bridge.

The ones you listed are all pretty high output, for classic rock, a PAF copy is probably best, so yeah, a '59 sounds great in the bridge too, slightly scooped with a real nice bite.

I always thought 59's were primarily bridge pickups.
I'd go for a paf pro in the neck, and a 59 in the bridge if i were you.
Paf pro's are relatively low output, but handle distortion VERY well. Great for the classic gibson PAF tones, but yet does great for shred, and higher gained music. Paul gilbert, and joe satriani both use PAF pro's in the neck.

but i want 59 in the neck for versality. in the seymour website, it's mostly neck..

I used to run two '59s in my les paul and it was plenty versatile, I played jazz to blues to classic rock to Van Halen style metal.

Even if you have two of the same pickup in your guitar, they still sound very different in the neck and bridge.

THat's very true, pickups will sound much different in different places.
