pickup recommendations for s470

hi everyone,

New to this forum. I am actually mainly a Strat/Tele guy, but ever since the original FGM100 (the fluorescent yellow Frank Gambale signature model) came out and I had a chance to play one over 20 years ago, I have lusted for a Sabre body Ibanez. I'm now the proud owner of an MIK s470, and it's a fantastic guitar in terms of playability, but the stock pickups leave a bit to be desired. I'm looking to use this guitar to play more jazz-fusiony stuff (think early Frank Gambale "Live"/Chick Corea Elektric Band "Light Years", Greg Howe "Introspection"-ish tone, not so much Herman Li/Steve Vai). So I guess this means warm cleans and really creamy overdrives, and not too much low end. Suggestions? I play mostly through a Fender HRD.

Post this in the pickups and wiring thread and answer the questions in the "Before you ask about pickups" sticky at the top if the section.
You'll get proper exposure and we'll have more info to help narrow down some suitable pickups.
