Pickups for a Comins GCS-1

Hi all,
I've had this GCS-1 since it was new. The guitar has huge frets and is pretty dark sounding acoustically. The original pickups were Kent Armstrongs wound really fat and the guitar had a huge fat tone, but was treble deficient. I think it is made in the Epiphone factory, the lead pu is set pretty far from the bridge.

I replaced the Armstrongs with some Seymour Duncan 59's, which made it a little more trebly, but I would like to have more treble.

The harness is a Dr. vintage.

Any suggestions to get more treble out of this guitar?
