    Yea he uses the Big Dipper pickups in his sig strat. I played one of his sigs the other day, loved how it played, but wasn't crazy about the PUps.

    Another company that makes them is Torres Engineering's Buzkut pickups...designed to mimic the scooped mids JM pickups. Haven't had too much experience with them. I just know that they charge for repairs (I got the pickup used and it came in the mail damaged).
