I agonized over whether to put a Jazz or a '59 in the neck of my Dean Evo 7. The '59 won out, just because i wanted something with a bit more punch, and i figured if i wanted a jazzy tone, i could roll back the volume and tone a bit. I'd love to hear your impressions of the Jazz 7.
My Duncans are sitting downstairs on the kitchen table until my GHS Boomers arrive from juststrings.com (.010 to .060!). I'm basically gutting the whole guitar... only the switch and jack will remain. I'm putting in two push-pull pots to switch the pickups into series/parallel.
