I dont know what pups to buy?

I have a relativity mid grade La custom shop Ibanez. Its decked out with upgrades, phatty wire, shielded..bound neck...

I removed the pickups and sold them and they were humbuckers from hell.
All I know is this guitar ~PREFORMS~ However I do not know what to buy.

My question and thought was the F1 and F2 to match the year 1991 of the body. I dont really want to spend $120 for pickups. Do I need to? I see many vintage older "Ibanez" pickups for $20 each. I have spent to much money this year, Pissed it all away. But I do have $400!

But to finish this "Art project" of a guitar can any enlightened people tell me about the cheaper pickups? I don't like the V7/V8. Im not after clunk clunk muddy "Nue metal"
