I think I may get an Abraxas bridge and a Holydiver neck if it cleans up well

If you want a classic singing neck pickup tone, I don't think you'd find much wrong with the Abraxas neck.  I'd go for the calibrated set if you're already decided on the bridge model.
Well that's what I was going for originally but the word "fluidity" kinda got to me with the HD for that chimey, full sorta sound around the 12th fret... Unless the Abraxas does better at fundamental cleans

Warmoth Jazzmaster
Telecaster Standard

Dunno - it's a very specific question, I think we need someone who's very familiar with both pickups.  Maybe Nolly will chime in, or perhaps it's worth calling BKP at this stage to talk it through?

The Holydiver just seems to work brilliantly in everything  :D
