    I am looking for the difference in tone of those 2 pickups on the bridge location, what is your opinion on this? And why? I have SA for neck and mid... so hss or sss, do 85 mix well with SA? hss 85,SA,SA or sss SA,SA,SA?

    Man, you have to decide what you want, if you want a strat go SA, if you want a superstrat go with the 85. they sound very different, both are very nice. but again, sell your 85, buy an 89 and have both.

    I have a tele with 89/89R and it's freaking amazing. literally I can do anything with that shit, from tele, to strat, to a very full humbucker sound.
