Fender Pro Jazz Pickup Help

    I could use some input on pickups for my American Pro Jazz.

    I play mostly finger style through an Ampeg preamp, SVT-style sound. Not overtly aggressive in sound, but with a certain amount of old school drive.

    I love the deep register of the factory installed V-mod pickups, the E and the A string sound great and have real punch and presence. The higher register I'm not so fond of. I know these pickups are a combination of Alnico V and II and to my ears the alnico II part (d and g string) of the PU lacks clarity and bite.

    If I were to find a new set of pickups with a character of the deep register, but on all strings, where should I look?

    Input would be much appreciated, thanks.
