    just a suggestion..I'm sure there are lots of choices here, but..

    I would try a DiMarzio ceramic set with high output...doesn't matter what style, P or Jazz. They have tons of mid-range growl and are pretty aggressive pickups with a razor edge.
    Since you're building it yourself, if you go with a dual pickup system, you could go with a tap coil setup for coil splitting tone options.

    For the sound you're looking for,DiMarzio would be the first place I would look.
