    Dimarzio Model J's could work.

    Modern or Vintage? I would go for the Antiquity II's mentioned earlier. If not, some 60's custom shop.

    The Nordstrand nj4se's have a low mid bump. I have them on my Jazz and love them. Nordstands's description: These are a split coil hum cancelling design. They use the same hand wound pattern found on our NJ4's but with a finer wire called 43 gauge enamel. The natural character of this design is to have a more pronounced lower midrange, and a slightly muted high end.

    I just finished doing this same search. I have a 2012 Am Std Jazz bass and was looking to replace the pups in it. I was looking for something very growly and very low/low-mids focused. Ultimately, I'm going with Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2 but here is the full list of the pickups I was considering. Hope it helps:

    1) Delano JMVC 4 FE/M2
    2) SGD Jazzbuckers
    3) Nordstrand NJ4SE
    4) DiMarzio Ultra Jazz
    5) Duncan Hot Stacks and SJB-5 (it's in the 5-string section, but works for 4-stringers)

    Sounds to me like you might be more interested in a "modern" tone (as opposed to "vintage")

    There are some awesome videos on youtube of Giorgio Santisi playing basses equiped with the JMVC 5 FE/M2s (they don't get much mention here on talkbass, but they've won my heart)
