Pick up choice

I have a Brazilian ash petrucci model upgrade body. I like a god smack type tone and also go for a metal/thrashy sound.
Basically the heavy low end crunch but smooth and the leads of Alex Skolnick and the likes of helloween.
I am curious as to what combination of pickups would give me close to these and of course something that can offer a nice clear clean if possible.
I would also like to be able to pick some chords so the sound I want cant be to muddy either.
This probably sounds like a lot but my experience with replacement pups is nill.
Any opinions would be nice.
Does anyone know what pickups yamaha uses in their rgx series.
Im not sure what model it is but it has a floyd copy, 2 humbuckers and a single coil, wood grain finish and chrome hardware. This guitar sounds awsome.
