So I'm thinking of getting a SD Sh-6 in the Bridge and either a SD cool rails, or hot rails in the neck. Would these fit well together?

For the bridge I'd like a hardcore, screamo, metal sound that can also get good cleans, but a good distorted sound would be the main focus. I like the sounds of Saosin, Underoath, Anberlin, August Burns Red and Protest the Hero.

For the neck I'd like to keep the basics of a single coil but I need a bit more of a punchier and more aggresive sound, I'm thinking the cool rails would be good for this, but I'm open to any suggestions. I need more of a nice raw overdrive rather than a heavy distortion sound from the neck and great sparkling cleans as well.

And don't tell me it won't make a difference with an SS amp, I'm selling it and looking around for a tube amp, I'd just like to know what I should be looking out for for PU's

The Drop Sonic seems pretty nice, I'm not really familiar with Dimarzio PU's though so I'll have to look into them.
And for Ghold125, I said I wanted "more of a nice raw overdrive rather than a heavy distortion sound from the neck and great sparkling cleans as well" cause I want to keep it close to a single coil sound.
Any other suggestions/opinions?
