There are two pickups that found to be universal for almost all type of rock: seymour sh4 and my new fav is emg 57 (although I hate 81 and 85). They are balanced and can sound properly in guitars made by from basswood through ash to mahagony etc.
please consider the amp u use as well. For example for a dual recto not preferable to use an invader (which is bass heavy) as you will get muddy sound. For marshall use blanced pickup to let the strong mids of wolgang to cut through. Especially on seymour page you find the sonic balance of each pickup, so easy to choose.
