DiMarzio's site usually makes recommendations about which position pickups are best used in.

Evo, Tone Zone and Steve's Special i think are all normally recommended for the bridge position since they're very hot. PAF Pro makes a nice neck pickup from what i've read, but might not be powerful enough to balance well with an Evo and/or Tone Zone.

Vai doesn't really play floral JEMs any more, does he?

All JEM models used PAF Pros in both neck and bridge for the first couple of years. Then he and DiMarzio developed the Breed, and finally the Evolution. His guitars have always had matched bridge/neck pickups, with the JEM single in the middle.

What kind of guitar are you putting them in? What kind of sound are you going for? Both are important questions. I just put a Tone Zone in the bridge and an Air Classic "Bridge" in the neck of a RG550, sounds great. The TZ is too bassy in some guitars though.

Go to DiMarzio.com and read the descriptions on each of the models and what they suggest pairing them up with.

The PAF Pro would work well in the neck position with any of the bridge pickups you mentioned.
