I'm looking for a good, versatile pickup combo to put into my Godin xtSA. It's got an H-S-H configuration and I'd like to be able to split the humbuckers so I can get that single coil sound too.
I generally play heavy classic rock (Sabbath, BOC, etc...), blues (SRV, Clapton, Hendrix) and the occasional poppier stuff (mostly 80's pop) to pay the bills.
I had thought to go with a Custom in the bridge and a '59 in the neck, but I'm not really sure what to pick for the middle single coil spot. Also, I don't really know how well the Custom and the '59 take to being split. Ideally, the split humbuckers will have a perceived output that plays nicely with the middle single coil.
Does anyone out there have any advice for a n00b pickup buyer?
