Pick up suggestions

Hey guy's, I'm buying one of these
Ibanez S670PB
And I'm thinking of putting a X2N in the bridge but I'm at a loss as to which pickup I should put in the neck position. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I've already got a S series 520EX with EMG's (81/60) in it and thought I'd go passive with the new guitar.

Do you prefer a more aggressive lead sound or a smooth one?

I like the smoothness side more, like a EMG 85, only not so bassy.

Okay scratch the Bareknuckles then

If no one here accurately answers in this thread, PM the_bleeding. I don't know how, but he seems to know everything.

OK, so I've ordered the X2N for the bridge. Will the Jazz pick up be a suitable match for it? I would really prefer to keep all the pickups Dimarzio if I can, is there Dimarzio version of the Jazz??
Help
I'm starting to look at the Dimarzio Liquidfire, seems like it would compliment the X2N nicely.

I don't know much about dimarzio's. I've only played the de-activators, and those were pretty sweet. I've played just about every major seymour duncan pickup though.

Dimarzio PAF Pro or Bill and Becky Lawrence/Wilde L500-R pickups are my fave neck humbuckers. The SD Full Shred sounds pretty good in the neck as does the Screaming Demon, get to the stores and get trying
