Hey, guys, I'm looking for some suggestions for pickups to upgrade my Squier Affinity Jazz V. This is the type of sound I'm after:

I've got my bass wired with a series/parallel switch, where the default position is series (so, pull out for standard J-bass wiring).
I work at Guitar Center, so ideally, I'd want something where I can use my employee discount. Two main contenders at the moment are the Duncan SJ5-3S set, and the Bartolini 57J1 set. From the research I've done, it looks like both of those should fit without issues - I measured my pickups, and they match up with the standard USA Fender JV pickup sizing.
Any thoughts on those, or are there others that would be better for what I'm after?
Every Bartolini I've heard has been awesome, and I'd have no reservations about picking up a set.
