Need advice on pickups for a strat

Hey, Guys.

How are you all doing today?

Well, here's the situation. I'm looking at swapping out my stock pickups in my MIM Fender Strat. Right now, it's a ssh setup but would like to look at getting a hsh setup instead.

So, here's a little info on the gutar. It's a 07 Fender MIM Strat with a Floyd Rose Tremolo and features a Rosewood fretboard. The guitar is made from Alder.

Here's what I'm looking at right now.

Neck - Dimarzio Breed
Middle - Dimarzio True Velvet
Bridge - Dimarzio Steve's Special

So, what do you guys think? I would like to hear your suggestions as well.

One more question, when changing pickups to something like this... so I worry about the tone pots and all that? I know, I'll need to rewire the right way and everything but I was juset wondering about all the other hardware.

Thanks guys.

Have a great weekend!

If you're gonna have a humbucker in the neck, swap its tone pot out for a 500k. Combo sounds okay to me; depends what you want it to sound like.
