Pickups ("enough already" I know) - Tricky One

Ok, here's the deal. *I want a set of 7-string pickups (not for now, but so I can save) that are good for a variety of things. *I play a variety of stuff, from nu-metal, metal, rock, alternative, punk, funk, and a little Vai influence thrown in. *I like a very heavy tone, but clarity is important. *And it has to sound good for lead stuff too. *I'd like the neck pickup to sound very creamy and smooth, and the bridge pickup to sound very agressive, high-gainy, heavy, but lots of clarity. *I use a Super Distortion in my 6-string's bridge position, and I like the tone a lot.

Pickups ("enough already" I know)

I have a little thing too that i have been thinking about... I have understood that the Blaze (bridge) is pretty similar to the Steve's special (BTW, is that Steve Blucher -> steve's special) in the way it have scooped out mids and punchy bass and treble... *That would mean a AN7 + Blaze II bridge will make a perfect JPM7 combo... have anybody tried this and compared ???
