Pickups for Ibanez RG370pbz 2016??

Hello there!! I'm wondering if you could help me decide which pickups should I get to upgrade my new Ibanez RG370 pbz...a new model of 2016.
It's a mahogany body, poplar burl top, and maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Configuration Hum-Single-Hum, and a five way selector switch.

I'm into versatility; enjoy playing from prog and thrash metal to clean jazz, and all in between... Running it through a Laney Cub Head, valvular, 15 watts, a one-channeled, sort of vintage kind of amp but with enough kick to get heavy. Very nice and warm cleans when you roll back the Gain (that's why I don't use a very hot pickup (I need the cleans to remain clean...).

Already got a PAF pro (neck) and Norton (bridge) in my other Ibanez, and I love the combination, but don't want ot repeat that. I was thinking of PAF Joe for the neck and Air Zone in the bridge, but I really don't know how do these PUPS match together and with the wood in my guitar. I've thought also of Humbucker from hell (neck) and Fred (bridge), but still, i'm a bit foggy about this. I'm afraid that the Air Norton-True Velvet-Tone Zone combination stock in some prestige Ibanezes may sound a little muddy and dark with the mahogany of my guitar...

I'm also very doubtful as concerning as the middle Single coil pickup. What should I use that in positions 2, 3 and 4 I get a pretty strat like voice and still don't loose volume in the way?? Maybe a HS-2?? A FS-1?? A true Velvet?? a Fastck Track 1?? Still, I'm completely lost.

Well, that's all. Really hope if you could guide me along the way. THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE.
