It's all about matching the sound characteristics of the guitar to the sound characteristics of the pickups to get the sound you want.
Your guitar has a basswood body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard right? If so you may want to check out a Super Distortion or Tone Zone for the bridge, witch will give you a warm, super thick tone, and it will balance out the brightness of the maple neck so you don't get a clangy, brittle sound when playing on the high strings. If you crank your amps gain real high you'll get a real thick, chuncky metal sound. If you back off on the gain it makes a nice blues pickup. If it sounds a bit too warm add a little more highs.
For the neck position I recommend the PAF Joe, it will give you a bit brighter sound, but will give you a great, bright, clean sound, and if you drive it you'll get a nice bluesy sound.

I thought RG's came equipped with DiMarzio pickups.. The stock Ibanez pups are usually quite good..

Nah, they come with Dimarzio designed pickups, witch are made cheaper, and don't sound quite as good.
