Pickup Help

Hey dudes, my main axe right now is a Fender Blacktop Strat, i have a Duncan Dimebucker in the bridge and a duncan distortion in the neck. I mostly play metal in all its little sub genres too, but as most i am partial to some blues,jazz or whatever. so i like a tight, thick , heavy distortion sound but i also like a pristine clean . So i was wondering if anyone can recommend me some new pickups.
Thanks guys

what's your amp?

but the obvious way to solve that is to put a high output pickup in the bridge with a paf-output pickup in the neck for the jazz and blues tones.

Your type of amp would really help us.

I put a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge of my strat, and it sounds just amazing. It gets a really thick distortion. (Used through a Tiny Terror for awhile, and now a Fender Hot Rod with a Big Muff)

For the neck pickup, I'd recommend anything with a lower pickup, Duncan Antiquity perhaps?
My soundcloud and my band, Mabel's Flight. Basically plebeian hipster music
