Pickups for my Ibanez Prestige RG2550

I just got an Ibanez Prestige RG2550 and I'm replacing the pickups in it. I'm putting a DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and a Fernandes Sustainer in the neck. I was wondering what a good single coil from DiMarzio would be for this setup. I just want something that compliments the Tone Zone well. I play some pretty aggressive metal, but I also play some more moderate stuff. Any suggestions would help.

I was recommended the DiMarzio Blue Velvet DP170 when I had the same question recently... still looking out for one here.

Re: Pickups for my Ibanez Prestige RG2550

Lots of options out there. The Velvets are popular on J-Customs. JEM Single is popular as well. Without knowing what kind of music you plan to play or what kind of playing you plan to do with the middle pickup, people will not reply too specifically. I got a ProTrack because I wanted something loudish with a small-ish tone difference with the ToneZone and the PAF PRO. I haven't wired it up yet though, because my soldering iron is as big as a rocket.
