My Les Paul got some hand-me-down 57/08 pickups that came out my hollowbody ii.
It was a decent improvement over the burstbuckers that it came with.
Failing that, check out some BKP mules, which also work well in a Les Paul.
(Mules are now in my hollowbody, but did spend a few weeks in the LP)
I wonder why the upcharge
Could be the 2021 price from PRS and others will follow?
could be supply and demand for a brand new product that some retailers are jumping on?
I'm closer to pulling the trigger on an ss, but not for $300 more (Australian dollars, double everything from US usually)
You'll be fine with any normal sized humbucker, but I would give the 5909's at least a shot.
Start with default amp settings, fresh strings, and an open mind to pickup height.
Of course, if they aren't for you, there are many options available too - I'm a big fan of making the guitar your own.
Any guitar wireless should be fine.
The thing to consider is if you are using 2 cables now, you'll need 2 wireless systems.
If you only use 1 cable now, then you'll be fine with one
I use a Shure slx unit on mine and it's fine - same as any other guitar with piezo or passive magnetic pickups.
I would Go 594 for the variety, and it should be awesome for the classic rock 70/80 you mention..
How do you like the ce for power metal at the moment?
Switching between the 2 may require some amp changes, (boost mentioned above as an idea). Is this going to cause you any problems ?
My number 1 gigging guitar is my cu22. It's amazing.
I'm surprised they sell so few and discontinued it, actually.
I'm waiting to see what ssh units come to Australia, I'd be happy to have another cu22 package with a slightly different flavor.

If you don't need to split the humbucker, looks like the red stays unconnected, then use while and black like a 2 connector pickup.
Nice choices. I have same pickups in almost the same guitars - very happy with them all.
What do you think of RR in your SC. I find it a little lacking the low end sometimes, but good with the band, and easy enough to eq where I need it.
In that case, I am no one... but there are others like me.
Back to 57/08, I took them out of my hollowbody because I didn't like the balance between neck and bridge. I felt the mules were an upgrade - for me, in this specific guitar.
I like 57/08's in my 245, and also donated the HB set to my...
I have swapped pickups in my cu22 and also my HBii+piezo
Hard? Not overly, but if you're not comfortable with a soldering iron, find somebody who is.
I took pictures along the way and printed out the schematic to refer to. Double checking every step, taking time, etc.
On my HBii I used normal...
