Ok, I've read in this thread how well they work for the neck with a hot bridge or in the bridge, but how does a Set sound? Do they make a "calibrated set" for Bridge and Neck? If not hows the balance between them?

As far as as I know there is only one model which can be used in both positions. Unfortunately I never used one in the bridge so I cannot comment on how it balances in a set.

Ok...just to bring a thread back from the dead; I'm dying to get one of these Ibanez, but I'm lukewarm on the stock pickups. Would a Bluesbucker bridge with a Twang King or True Velvet T neck blend together well?

The problem with all tele neck pickups I played so far is low output. The Area T neck is fine but is already overpowered by something like the Area Hot T, so even a low output humbucker like the Bluesbucker could be too much for either the Twang King or True Velvet T neck. Unless you really like this particular guitar I would rather pass.
