I have been a Seymour Duncan fan for over 20 years and most of my guitars have SD pups.
But I was unhappy with the JB/Jazz combo I put in my PRS Custom 24. It was lacking something and it was bothering me.
A friend suggested Bare Knuckle Pickups but warned they are expensive. Hand made in England.
After paying $320 for a Cold Sweat and VHII I installed them. The first thing I noticed was the extreme clearity; the notes were perfect. It's like a bag was lifted off my guitar.
The pickups work perfect together and the $4000 PRS sounds like a $4000 PRS. Tone is amazing, I play through a Mesa Road King and/or Mesa 2:90, and I was...well speechless.
I am not saying go out and change all your guitars or to stop buying SD's but try a couple in your favorite axe. Man...you will hear a huge difference.
