New pickups for my JPM

I love this guitar but I feel that I need to change pickups to maximize its potential. It has the stock pickups (Steve's Special and Air Norton). Here's what I need:

Bridge: more mids, great for single note soloing and fast picking (a la Paul Gilbert).

Neck: more clarity and snappier attack.

I was thinking about putting the Evolution in the bridge and the Humbucker from Hell in the neck but there would probably be too big an output difference between them?

Any suggestions?

Dominion bridge and neck. Definitely great mids, snappy crazy fast response. The neck has heaps of clarity. Awesome pair of pickups.

Great advice, thanks! Hadn't heard about these until now. The bridge model seem to be really popular but can you tell me more about the neck pup? Does it also have the same immediate attack as the bridge model? How does it compare to the Air Norton?

Thanks.

Super 3 in the bridge, Evolution or Gravity Storm in the neck.

Very fast as well. I think the neck is kind of a mix between the Air Norton and PAF Pro.
