What Single coils?

I've got an Ibanez Radius with HSS pickup configuration, and I need new pickups.

I really like the Dimarzio Mo Joe for the bridge, but I'm really lost on what to do for single coils.

I really dig that Satriani tone, and that's kind of what im going for with the Mo Joe, but I'm playing in a Jazz band next semester, so I'm going to need single coils that can handle jazz and work well with the Mo Joe

Anyone have any ideas?

Re: What Single coils?

ive just made a guitar with a mo jo in the bridge, its a HS guitar and I put a chopper in the neck, works well but is very "stratty" IMO..
others to consider are pro track with a fast track 1 middle, the fast track will do jazz in the neck too !
chopper middle and possibly a cruiser neck
chopper middle and air norton S neck - but this may be too aggressive for jazz, having said that its a great pickup and you should be able to use it depending on your control setup.

The Pro Track and Fast track 1 actually sounds pretty good.

Thanks for the reply!
