Ibanez SA160 mods?

So I'm wanting to mod my ibanez SA160 (i believe that's the model number) to sound more like a blues tele. Would love to get as close to vintage blues/tube sound as I can. I know it also has a lot to do with the amp but want to do what I can with the guitar first. I have been playing for over 15yrs and I build custom pedals for people. I haven't gotten into the realm of messing with guitars at all and don't know what kind of pick ups I should be looking for for this sound. I'm thinking about swapping pots and pickups, and possibly adding some circuitry any help would be very appreciated.
Thanks,
Aryk

Also wondering how I might get that generic but oh so good nintendo sound that I hear so often when played on the high strings something similar to August Burns Red Constellations album. (I know complete opposite direction as blues but I like range)
