The placement of the pickups has absolutely nothing to do with single cut /or not.
As far as 60 vs 70 goes, one is not necessarily better than the other, it's just different.
If you are a slapper and want the Marcus Miller tone, absolutely go for the 70's position.
If you play more finger style ( or you slap and you like the Larry Graham tone) the 60's position might appeal to you more.
I used to swear by the 70s placement, but these days I'm playing Latin Jazz and Salsa and in recent years the 5 string electric with roundwounds is used in that type of music more and more. For that it turns out the 60's location sounds better.
I hope that helps
