I think we've all seen this question one time or another, but the available pickup choices have changed as well.

What is the ideal set of pickups for a 5 way blade Swamp Ash Special (2007-ish).

I know that's kinda subjective...

I had thought of DGTs for a while, but I don't think I can get those from the PTC anymore.

Anyway, I've got 57/08s, 59/09s, two sets of 53/10s - my goal is to get a difference in tone beyond (or perhaps beyond isn't the best word) the afore mentioned PRS PAF types.

I'd like to not get a volume drop when tapped, and also still get some fender-ish plunkiness.

Should I go the unbucker route, or might there still be something still in the PRS inventory to satisfy my wishes?...

Even the 22 special sounded better than my SAS, is just sounds so bleh... (it doesn't appear to be pickup height, btw)

I don't think the 245s in the special would be my best option.

This is my lowest tier PRS, but it seems to be the one I'm most obsessed with - probably 'cause the others sound great!

Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Happy New Year...
