It seems that a set of 59s is what most people recommend or use in their 333/335s. I'm curious as to how a pearly gates would sound in the bridge of my 333. I've settled on the 59 for the neck but think that I'd prefer some a2s in the bridge. I've got the a2pro in the bridge of my tele and don't find 'em soft at all on the bass strings. Actually I find them very bright!
