Based on personal experience, I think you'd be better off, if you go Fralin, with a Steel Pole 43. The trick is to ask Lindy to tap it at 6.0K ohms and connect the tap to a minitoggle. Then you get the best of both worlds, untapped at 8.5K ohms a gnarly SC that's P90-ish in its edge but without all of the girth, at 6.0K a classic Strat tone that I believe is quite close to what you're seeking.
I since moved it to my new Jerrycaster but as I haven't gotten around to photographing the new one yet, here's my first J-caster. The Steel Pole 43 is in the middle. (Interestingly, my two HBs are Fralin Unbuckers. The sound gorgeous split but I'm not sure they're what I'm seeking for my HBs.)
