Don't forget you have lots of individual poles you can adjust, too.

Higher output pickups can often overdrive a clean channel. I ran into that using some L500 pickups; way hotter than anything else I have (including M22SD), and caused overdrive. Dialing back the volume is a good place to start, and is often a good way to play, so volume/distortion can be controlled from the guitar. I do this with tone controls, too.
Alternatively, the gain on the clean channel (assuming the amp has it), can be dialed back a bit to compensate for the higher pickup output.
Lastly, the pickup height can be lowered, but that will change the response, and lowering often seems to make them sound thinner/brighter (from picking up less string vibration).
Guitar theorem: G=X+1 where G= guitars one needs, and X = guitars one has.
Do or do not; there is no understand.
