Satch Pick-up's - should I change em?

I'm starting to wonder if I should change the pickups in a JS guitar. I mean, they have enough crunch for me, but I mean, how would a Evo in the bridge and a Breed in the neck sound? I've played both pickups but not with that combo. I was wondering if any of you have played that combo before and liked it. Or if not a Breed and Evo what others do you suggest?

Well, I did swap the PAF in the neck of mine to a Breed and I was pretty pleased with the result.

The PAF had that beautiful tone I always wanted ( especially when sweeping/tapping), but I though it lacked the presence.

The Breed gave me all I had with the PAF, plus the harmonic distinction you get from a FRED/EVO.

More clarity, but still the feel, if you know what I mean.

I'd recommend the swap without a doubt, the cleans are just stunning also!

Which model do you have the 100 or 1000? If it's the 1000 I'd leave them but if the 100 then definitely change them. I own a 100 and I want to throw a Evo in the bridge but something other than the Paf Pro in the neck since I plan on owning a 1000 and it already has one. I honestly think the Evo will sound awesome in a JS and the Breed should go well with it!! Ask around some more I know you can get alot of good advice!! Good luck on what you pick if you do! Later
