Uh, why would that be a problem? Tons of high-end guitars are made up of parts by tons of different brands. Say, it's a Jackson guitar, but it's got a Floyd Rose tremolo (different brand), Seymour Duncan pickups (different brand), Gotoh tuners (different brand), etc. etc. A lot of guitars out there have DiMarzios in the bridge and Seymour Duncans in the neck (or vice versa).
Im quite fine with having different brand pickups. Find whatever works for that position. Ive got a few guitars like that atm. eg, my tele i has a fralin neck and suhr bridge, i find the suhr bridge actually suits the neck more than the fralin bridge did.
Depends if your a musician or a gear whore/fan. Either is OK and they can blend together but there sure are a bunch of gear whores on the web that play like shit, but will tell you all about the specs of what they consider great..... but that changes every other month.
Yeah I heard many times one should not mix difference brand pickups and I was always like... why the F not? Its Magnets Wire and Plastic... if what I'm looking for doesn't exist in one Brand why am I purposely castrating myself?
