Re: Keep V1/V2 or go Dimarzio?
I'm a bit confused by what you're after here. You've mentioned that this guitar is your best sounding guitar. If you are really happy with the tone of the guitar then there's not really any point changing it.
In saying that, if there is something more you want from the guitar, you need to decide what it is you're after (more/less output, more low end, mids, highs, etc, more dynamics, etc) and then some pickup options may be able to be thrown out there.
But don't forget that you have other options too. If you generally like the tone of the guitar as is, you may be able to achieve subtle positive tweaks, just by adjusting the height of the pickup, or even just the pole piece heights too.
In short, don't just change pickups because you feel you have to get rid of the stock ones. If they do exactly what you want, or very close to, and you can adjust the stock ones to get even closer to your perfect sound, then stick with the stock pickups.
