I hope this is right place to ask

I am about to replace the dimbucker (which I realy was never fond of) and the stock neck pick up of my Ibanez RG570EX.

I am stuck between two pickups ..
Dimarzio EVO 2
Seymore Duncan JB

The tones I am into are
Steve Vai
Joe Satriani
Doug Aldrich
Vivien Campbell
Andy Timmons
Nancy Wilson
.... and generally warm 80s lead tones

Which one would you recomened OR would it be a good/bad idea to mix them and have one in the bridge and one in the neck and if so which ones where?

Thanks :)

You can't go wrong with a Duncan JB in the bridge. It's a great all around pickup with some nice mids to it. I have a Dimarzio Tone Zone in one of my guitar and it sounds amazing for leads but is a little too fuzzy for rhythms as the bottom end is too fat. Muds up the tone a bit.
