I have to back the PAF Pro recommendation. While it's probably not what I'd choose for the bridge (I like a LOT of mids in the bridge spot), it'll sound great clean in both spots. While it may not have the same psychological effect on you as having a fire-breathing pickup in the bridge, you'd be surprised at how well the PAF style pickups will do high-gain. The slightly lower output makes them very clear, and they have a real nice, even response. If they sound good to you, but you'd like a little more output/mids/harmonics, than I think you'd be happy with the FRED. It's basically a slightly hotter PAF Pro with a touch more midrange. Listen to Satch's CDs for a good idea of what they sound like for lead and rhythm. Also bear in mind that they can be made to sound much more ferocious than they do on Joe's records.
