Pickup reccomendations?

Well hello people of Jemsite,

Couple of months ago I've got myself an Ibanez RG670 with some horrible brandless pickups in it. The body is made out of ash and I'm looking for an 80's trebly Paul Gilbert tone. I hope you guys can help me out.

P.S: this is my first post on this forum (yay!)

P.P.S: excuse me for the bad pic

In the Intense Rock video where his tone is supra bright he's using a Seymour Duncan mini humbucker in the neck and (depending on who you ask) either a Distortion or Custom in the bridge position.
