Pickups for S470

Wanting to put new pickups in there, but undecided as to which! I was thinking either: Evolutions with a Blue Velvet in the middle; PAF Pro in the neck and Fred in the bridge, and Blue Velvet in the middle; Air Norton in the neck, HS-2 in the middle, Tone Zone/Steve's Special in the bridge.
Any help would be appreciated. I play everything from Vai and Satch to Hendrix and SRV, but mostly its shred/fusion that I play. BTW the S470 has a mahogany body, so does that make a major difference to the sound compared to basswood/alder?
Peace and thanx,

do a forum search, there are simply hundreds of pages devoted to mahogany type bodys and possible pickup combinations.

That said, you can't really go wrong with dimarzios.

Evo's will yield good results.

Narrowed it down to a Tone Zone in the bridge, and either a PAF Pro or an Air Norton in the neck. Also looking around on ebay for a Jem single-coil for the middle.
