so basically pickups or guitar, im opened to suggestions to pickups for a bluesy classic rock /modern rock tone.
Get the Tele - it's awesome.

The pickups in any of your three choices may not be any better than your Austin. I think that the only time you should upgrade pickups in a cheaper guitar (nothing wrong with a good quality cheap axe) is if you are never going to sell it as you will lose a lot upon resale. For your $700 you can do a little better than your three choices although I would lean toward the Fender. The Epiphones are overpriced. Go with a plain-top if you want an Epi Les Paul. Just as good (some say better) and about half the price. I would do some more shopping.
It's your decision really, they're all good guitars, just depends whether you want HB's or SC's
EDIT: New guitar, not new pickups
