Pickup choices - humbuckers

Hello,

I currently have a tele (basswood body/maple neck) with a Seymour Duncan JB humbucker in the bridge position, and am thinking of changing it

 

the JB is a good pickup, but to me it just seems a bit to fluffy and undefined, so i am looking for a pickup to replace it, a decent output and probably with a similar sound to it, just 'better' than the jb to me

 

i was pointed in the direction of the pearly gates - a similar eq but lower output, so hopefully more defined and better, or the duncan custom which i was thinking about putting in another guitar as it looks like a decent sounding unit

 

any ideas on pickups to use here?

yeah, i did play about with it a bit and found the nicest sounding point, a friend did mention to me yesterday that it dosent really sound the same as the jb in his ibanez, so i am not sure if its the guitar or what, i am intending rewiring it when i get round to buying the parts though, so i guess i will see if that helps at all
