Bill Lawrence L-500L?

I would normally recomend a Carvin C22B, but those has a very unique sound, you won't sound like anyone else with those.

EVH used a PAF humbucker form his Gibson ES355. but then if u want to get the tone from not only ur amp, but with the pickup's help, get a high output Seymour Duncan Custom Custom or sumtin.

a tube amp.

if not, then... maybe a Pearly Gates or a Custom Custom... but those pickups shines when used with a pretty high gain tube amp.

If you want the best pickup for Van Halen then you want the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop 78 model for Evenly Voiced Harmonics...but that's $160!

If that's too expensive then go with the Custom Custom. Other ones worth looking at are the Bareknuckle VH2 and the Dimarzio Norton.

The Custom Custom is the one you'll get recommended if you email Seymour Duncan and ask their advice on an EVH pickup.
