I would probably only ever use the neck single coil and split humbucker at the same time in the middle position, never the full humbucker. Do you think an M22T coil split would still over power the AP11?

No, it wouldn't. It'd be great.

When I had a C22B and an AP11 mounted in this guitar I didn't think the C22B buried the AP11. But more often than not, when I had them both on I'd split the C22B. I thought they were a great pair.

Well thanks guys, this forum has been extremely helpful. But I guess, pointless since I’ve just been informed by Kiesel that I can’t make any changes to my order, even pickups.

Kind of ridiculous but oh well, live and learn.

Let’s see how the S60 and C22T I initially ordered turns out.

Fingers crossed.

I think the S60 will get you closest to Strat chime. I voted S60 and Lithium Bridge since you mentioned OPeth.
FWIW I have a TL60 with AP11 and C22B and I'd never change them; great combo. the old 133 option comes with a 3 way switch for the C22b so you can select either coil individually or both. With the 3 way pickup selector in the middle and the coil the switch 'up' (or neck side coil of the c22b) it kills the hum. Sounds great!
