replacement pickups - RG570

Looking to replace the stock pickups (V7/S1/V in a late-90's RG570 (AANJ, basswood body, maple neck w/ rosewood).

I play lots of blues, classic rock, 80s hard rock, instrumental rock, classic metal. Also some newer hard rock.

Influenced by guys like EVH, Mark Kendall of Great White, Michael Schenker, Joe Satch, Andy Timmons.

Amp is a Marshall Haze, using a Tube Screamer to boost.

Was thinking of a Dimarzio AT-1 for the bridge, with a True Velvet in the middle and an Air Norton in the neck. Looking for pickups with both muscle and clarity. Not too loose for power chords, and needs to clean up well with good coil splits.

Any thoughts how this would work with the rest of my rig for my style?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Sounds good. If you want to try some Seymour Duncan I can definitely vouch for the Custom and Pearly Gates neck. Crazy good combo.
