Smile Fred strat pickups help me choose

Hi people.

I have a js 1000 (old and batterd but still going strong).
and a Mexican Strat which i use for Eb songs when playing live.
the strats output is much lower than the JS, (obviously) and i want to replace the pick ups to bring it in line with the js.... this is where i need you guys to help me sort through the miriad of pickups available.
ideally i would like it to sound like the fred.. i know thats probably asking a lot without cutting a big hole into it ..

thanks in advance guys

If you want a Fred, use a Fred. The hole is already there under the pickguard. You just have to change the pickguard, or cut the hole.

Of course that is just one of many options ...
