RG7621 stock pickups WAY too hot!

So after running my other guitars through my Mesa 50 Cal+ I find that the 7621's pickups are way too hot for my tastes. So I'd need some suggestions on what I should pickup for pickups I'm kinda looking for the Super 58 sound. I don't care about what brand it is, as long as they're workable.

1. What type of music do you like? here's a small sampler of what I'm going to play with the 7621.


2. What type of equipment are you going to be playing through? Mesa 50 Cal+ with an 1x12 Orange Cab, Celestion V30 (I think)
3. What are the specifics of your guitar? 25.5 inch scale
A. Is it a trem or hardtail? Hardtail
B. maple or rosewood board? Rosewood
C. how many frets? 24
D. what controls are on it? 1V1T
E. What type of wood is you body made from? Basswood
F. Are your pickups direct mounted, ring mounted or in a pickguard? Direct Mounted

Thanks guys

PAF7 / Air Norton 7.

Take whichever one has the lowest output and put it in the neck.

Problem solved!
