Pickups for an SA220FM?

I've got an SA220FM. It plays wonderfully and is nice and light. It has an S type slim mahogany body with a thin veneer maple top and 2 point tremolo.

Can anyone suggest some pickups that have good articulation and a full range of tone? The ones that are on it stock are not that great.

I'd like to get some sweet clean bluesy sounds from the neck and still have some sparkle to the highs and for the bridge a woody bottom with a smooth cutting mid range that has a touch of sparkle, not too dark.

I use tube combo amps and some high quality overdrive and distortion pedals.
