What pups for my RG

So with my new S540 coming that will become my #1, I'm left with my RG and a few pups sitting around. Not sure what I should install in it. Here's what I have in my tool box:

Duncan Jazz Neck
IBZUSA C3 [single coil]
Ibanez QMS1 [single coil]
Ibanez QM1
Dimarzio Blue Velvet bridge [single coil]

I'm not opposed to buying another pup to drop in...so I'm not limiting myself to what I have on hand. I'm not a shredder by any means. I play reggae, so I'm always playing clean 90% of the time in positions 1, 2 or 4.

Rg's are dark sounding guitars. I have an Air Norton in my 770dx, too dark for me. The Humbucker from Hell sounds amazing in that position. AMAZING

Middle Pickup: waste of space

Bridge: Ahh... so many to choose from. SH11 Custom Custom is nice, Tone Zone if you want more bite. Duncan Distortion works too.
