    Default SH-5b, SH-11b or SH-14b and SH-1n or SH-2n

    Hello!

    I have a Fender Stratocaster HH with S-1 switch system and I`m looking forward to buy new pickups both bridge and neck. Well I mostly play rock/punk/pop/emo music from 50s to 90s and so on. I just wondered what SD PUs would be suitable for me. I like very bright cleans and rich distortions.
    There are PUs that I`ve been thinking of...

    Bridge:
    SH-5 Custom
    SH-11 Custom Custom
    SH-14 Custom 5

    Neck:
    SH-1 59'
    SH-2 Jazz

    So what PUs would you recommend to me?

    Thanks!

    I'm with Jonesey on this one.

    PG set, or if your bridge position is kind of bright, PG/CC.
    Ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby.

    the PG's you can buy and the PG's that come in Fender guitars are different...keep thaqt in mind. If you like it bright STAY AWAY FROM THE CC...it is a killer pickup but not a bright pickup the Custom is the brighter of the 3 you named for the bridge...but were it me I'd go with a Custom V (I do not like ceramic magnets, but that said I have a Duncan Distortion that is a killer pup!). For the neck either is a good choice, but I'd get a 59 for that set-up...good luck

    Ok, thanks. Well what I`ve read about Custom 5 has almost all been bad, I dont know why? I fee like most of the all humbuckers can make a good distorted sound but what PU can make also a very/extreme good clean sound too?

    Seems like Pearly Gates and Custom 5
