Changing Gretsch mini-humbucker to single coil pickups

  1. Hi, I own an Gretsch Junior Jet electromatic and I'm not happy with the sound of its mini-humbucker pickups. I'd like to replace them with single coil pickups but I'm looking for some single coil pickups which fit in its holes and it's not easy. The reason why I want to do it is that I like better the brighter single-coil sound. Just a question of taste, maybe you think I'm crazy.
    My luthier tried to convert the mini-humbuckers to single-coils but told me it's not so easy because of its wiring and told me to try some Hofners.
    But I'm looking for info about Hofner bass pickups and it seems to me that all or most of current Hofner pickups available are humbuckers as well, not single-coils.
    Any brand or model recommendation? Any info about contemporary Hofner bass pickups? (If you try to find it you'll find there's not much info available about them, even at the Hofner website).
    Thanks in advance.
