Not sure if you did this but you can remove the polepieces to clean them. Or if you really want that new look you could buy new polepieces from Dimarzio.

On a side note, how did you come to have three different types of saddle screws? The different screw heads caught my eye.

Re: js2400 bridge pickup coil a bit oxidized

Clean any metal parts every time after you play your guitar, and yeah that includes the strings!, this is must man, there is way too much gunk and rust to be just for living near the water, the pick up holder screws are gonna rust eventually so replace them when that happens, keep in mind that every time you put the guitar in its case with rust in it, you're just letting it propagate to other parts.

Also do a full clean up (bridge, control knobs, neck, tuning pegs, body, etc) every time you change strings, thats the perfect time to get to those hard to clean places, you got an expensive and truly awesome professional instrument, you need to take care of it man.

on the screws i honestly hate those dreaded saddle screws that ibanez makes so i finally after all these years found out what type of screws too get alot cheaper and way more you could by rather than 6 at a time i just haven't changed them out yet!

I can't believe the condition of your guitar as it is a JS2400, so max 6 years old. I don't know where you live but it is for sure that you absolutely do not clean your strings after playing (you should also wash your hands before playing).
I do have a guitar that is more than 30 years old and DiMarzio pickups for more than 12 years: no corrosion excepted at the bottom of one hex pole piece hole.
