I recently sold my SSL-2/SSL-2/SSL-6 set that was in my SX Strat. Although they sounded amazing, they were too limiting for what I wanted to do (high gain). So I've turned it into a H-H Strat. I used 500k pots and then put a trem spaced Custom in the bridge (perfect!) and for the neck.....a JB!
A JB in the neck is the best neck bucker I've used, less bass then a 59 but still warm and smooth. That annoying upper mid hump works wonders in the neck slot making single notes cut thru perfectly. The Custom and JB match pretty well together both clean and distorted.
I had tried a JB in the neck years ago and liked it then. Since I had these pickups laying about I decided to give 'em another shot and I'm very happy I did!!!!
