That would be fine too. Or... if gold covers are what you're after, try Kiesel's S22s. They have two different versions for the bridge positions, the S22B is hotter than the S22T.

I am actually going to get the S22T's in the Bridge and Neck position of my next and last build a SH550. I don't want a high output pickups. Get a nice warm even tone.
My Kiesel/Carvin collection: ST300 (M22SD bridge, S60 middle, Twin blade neck), SCB6 (S22B bridge, S22J neck), Bolt Classic (Ap11's in all positions), SH550 (S22T in the neck and bridge), AC375 and CL450. Also a Carvin V3M 50watt head with a Carvin 1x12 cabinet and Fender Jazz Bass.

You can't go wrong with the Suhr Aldrich pickups. I have them in three guitars!
