RG1520GK Roland ready, pickup options

UPS delivered my RG1520GK Roland ready, and I like everything about this guitar except the pickups. I'm looking for something brighter, especially for the bridge pickup.

I know the stock pickups are a little lower profile than some aftermarket pickups.

Does anyone here have any experience changing the pups in this rare bird?

After doing a little online shopping, and sound clip surfing, I think I'd like something along the lines of the Seymore Duncan JB Trembucker, which sounds cleaner and brighter to me.

I'm new to Ibanez guitars, so forgive my ignorance. Is there a list of direct replacement pickups for RG models anywhere online? What I've read so far makes me think that some are not a easy no mod install. HELP!
