Model J pickups in Warmoth Body- anyone had depth issues?

    Almost ready to buy a set of pickups for a Warmoth Jazz body I'm now finishing. I've tentatively settled on Model Js, with one concern- the depth of the rout.

    I know some people have had issues getting the pickups low enough to suit them, and I like my action to be fairly low. The routs are 3/4" deep- is that going to be deep enough for the pickups to fit? I expect to have to use a thinner piece of foam, but I'd rather use another pickup than shim (there are plenty of good pups out there, so as long as I have an option, that's the one I'll take). Any help anyone here can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
