Alder body pickup help?

Hi Guys,

I have a warmoth Alder super strat being made at the moment, and was wondering you opinions on pickups.

Stuff i play include Joe Satch, Van Halen, Iron Maiden.

I have been using a Air Zone and Air Norton in my Basswood Ibanez, which I like but the bridge is not very clear when strumming the odd chord, I was thinking about a Hybrid Custom/59. I am also thinking about a weaker neck pickup such as Pearly Gates, A2Pro or Dimarzio Paf Pro, as the air norton at times is not very clear under light gain.

Has anyone tried a Dimazrio Super Distortion coil and Paf Pro coil as a hybrid. I have them laying around, not too sure about the wire gauge, DC resitance would be around 11K.

That is what I am going to try with a jazz or 59 in the neck.
