I say you go for the Seymour Duncan Jazz in the neck and the Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge, I just got it done and it sounds amazing, I'll post some clips here of it soon when I get it uploaded (I have a EPi Les Paul Standard) (also by the way on the Seymour Duncan website Seymour says that this combo is his favorite combo)
Gear:
Fender '72 Telecaster Custom Black
Fender American Strat Chrome Blue
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Heritage Cherry (Jazz/JB)
Takamine EG530SSC (acoustic)
VOX AD50VT
Ibanez Tube Screamer
E-H Deluxe Memory Man

I'd also suggest something like the Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge. If the Jazz doesn't suit your fancy, perhaps the Seymour Duncan '59 in the neck may be better for you. The JB/'59 Combo is a fairly popular one.
Gear:
Fender Standard Telecaster (Sunburst Finish)
Washburn X-Series Electric (Black Finish)

I made these recordings through a stock computer mic (cheapy) and just put it up to the amp and opened windows default sound recording program and recorded these little demos to here what the pickups sound like for sifferent styles. The fist part of each one is just palm muted D and A chord, the second is an alternative rock (think u2) style riff, and the third is an "out of the box" pentatonic scale and the fourth is just a normal pentatonic scale.
