I'm thinking to get Dimarzio pickups for my Ibanez since most Ibanez guitars have dimarzios. I play punk rock (both modern and old), alternative (modern), funk/blues (RHCP, John Mayer) and shred (Steve Vai, Paul Gilbert).

My Ibanez owns a floyd rose-like tremolo arm.

Probs paf pros for the majority of the stuff, an area 58 in the middle. The only thing that might not keep up with pafs as well is the shreddy stuff, but what you listed as shred still has tones that aren't super modern.

So BOTH bridge and neck pickups would be both PAF PROS?

They have paf pro models for neck and bridge yes. Dimarzio has clips on their site too, and the pafs are decently hot pickups, so I don't know that you'd need anything hotter. For the rhcp stuff I really don't think you'd want anything too much hotter cause it will be way too hot in comparison to your middle pickup.

EDIT: I should clarify,, it's not a different model, but rather it works well in both neck and bridge positions.

Most versatile?

Norton bridge, Humbucker from Hell neck, True Velvet middle.

Definitely Paf Pro in the neck, but try a Tone Zone in the bridge. I'm happy with that combo

I have Duncans in my Ibanez HSH...

I really wanted versatility... incase you are interested in Duncans at all... I would recommend the 59 for the neck and the TB-14 for the bridge. The middle (single coil) pickup is up to you, but I personally have the alnico 2 in the middle.

I am thinking...

Bridge: DiMario Breed / Seymour Duncan Custom (TB-5)
Middle: DiMario True Velvet
Neck: DiMario Humbucker from Hell

Is this combo good?

Bridge: Tone Zone
Middle: True Velvet
Neck: PAF PRO

There's nothing versatile about the tone zone - it's loud, brash and extremely middy. It's great for flashy lead playing and in-your-face solos but that's about it, it doesn't do subtle, has awful cleans and can sound overly compressed and brittle for a lot of styles.

The Humbucher from Hell is by far your best option for the neck as it'll get you closer to those strat-like neck sounds than any other humbucker.

neck - humbucker from hell ( almost sounds like a single coil)
middle - area 58/61/67 or true velvet
bridge - paf pro or norton (slightly hotter than paf pro)
