Are these your suggestions or are you just wondering if they can get Gilmour's tone?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

my cousin said he tried all the fender pickups, and nothing was ever close to the dimarizo's. i liked the sound of the area 58's in reproduction of the gilmour sound, but the guy at GC said the emg's have terrible highs. so from the opionions of professional musicians, dimarzio's were the best, just a matter of which ones. its going through a crate vtx 200, soon to be a twin reverb reissue though, once i sell my quad

quote from the guy at GC" fender never made good pickups, thats why dimarzio is around, fender pickupss are 1/3 of the power and sound of dimarzio's"

so otherwise, lets say i didnt use dimarzio's or the dg20's (gilmour prewired) what would you guys recommend?

Except that David Gilmour used the stock pickups in his 1969 "black strat" to record most of PF's albums prior to Animals. In which he used a Dimarzio in the bridge, before the Wall in which he switched to a Seymour Duncan.

Second, don't listen to the people at GC for advice. I had a guy try to convince me that I didn't need to bias power tubes in the amp that I built. They seriously have no clue what they are talking about half the time. I've had people there tell me that the cab I run my head through doesn't really matter, I've had people there tell me that a Seymour Duncan JB would fix my tone issues when I had just complained about the shrill and muddy tone of the pickup in the bridge of my les paul (the irony is that the pickup is actually a Seymour Duncan JB). They really just pull stuff out of their ass sometimes and have zero credibility in my mind.

Last, people need to get this through their heads. It's impossible to call a pickup maker that makes as many different models as Dimarzio or Seymour Duncan "the best," some of their pickups are good, some of them suck.

I rest my case about GC employees. Name any classic recording done with a strat, the majority of those were done with stock pickups, I guess none of those sounded any good. I especially would not trust their opinions on good tone.
