Unexpected NGD! Washburn WG587V

So after work I decided to stop by Guitar Center on my way home. Went inside and saw all the usual stuff. Walk over to the used guitars saw a few guitars I liked and then I saw it out of the corner of my eye. It was hidden behind a few other used guitars. A Washburn WG587V in almost new condition, I pick it up examine it. Korean made and knowing these were alder body guitars, I had been keeping my eye out for one for awhile. Sit down and play it unplugged, resonated nicely and sounded great! Plugged it in and jammed on it for awhile. Thinking it was overpriced I look down at the price tag... $149! I practically knock over the sales rep and purchase the guitar. The rest is history... Love the neck and the stock pickups aren't horrible. Any suggestions on a bridge pup?

Alder body? Try the following:

SD Invader
SD Custom
SD FullShred
DiMarzio Blaze Custom
DiMarzio ToneZone (Don't recommend as the 7 string version is not as nice as the 6)
BKP Warpig
BKP Holydiver
