I'm not an expert by along shot either but IMO I don't think you could go wrong with the 57 classics
there definitely every thing you mention your looking for ...

That!




I'm also exceptionally fond of the 490R in the neck pup and if you want to add some bite on the bridge pickup go with a 498T.

The 490 is AlNiCo 2 and the 498 is AlNiCo 5 if it makes a difference to you. They are a very good combination in the Les Paul!

I do like my Burstbucker 1 & 2 in my '04 LP Standard LE too...

I'm also quite fond of the Minibuckers in my Y2K LP Deluxe LE reissue...

This chart can be quite helpful:
