    You've probably already found a solution, but I would consider Lollar pickups. He's based out of Tacoma, WA (30 minutes South of Seattle) and builds all kinds of pickups, including Jaguar style pickups. I live near him and a number of years ago did some non-guitar related work for him. He is a really nice person, and the world-wide acceptance of his pickups says volumes about the product he produces. IMHO he should at or near the top of the list.

    Thanks for the endorsement. I haven't found a solution yet, but I may take you up on your suggestion!

    It makes a big difference in whether licensing that technology is likely to be profitable and therefore worth the cost and effort.

    I don't think John Page's Bloodline 1, 2 and 3 have been mentioned here and deserve to be.

    Wow... that is one extensive list... and I’m happy to be able to mention two new ones...

    First out is Mason Electrics which is made by a fellow guitar player from my hometown, Kristiansund. He doesn’t have a web page, but is available on Facebook. I have two custom made “pearly-gate-ish” buckers in my Gibson Les Paul Standard.

    Second, but not least Edmire. Also Norwegian but from Tromsø way up north. I have a HSS set one one of my custom built guitars and a P90 set on another. I’m about to install his ToneFactory P90 in my Gibson Les Paul Custom -54 Reissue. So far the best pickups I’ve tried.
    Edmire.no and Facebook. His webpage is under reconstruction though...

    Southside! Really! 25187, Home of well... nothing!
    Good afternoon! I have an ES Les Paul Standard (no F Holes) with MHS pickups in it. I really like the neck pickup, but the bridge pickup sounds honky/mushy/squishy (probably a horrible description). I usually play a 79 Tele with Frailin Blues Special in the bridge. What pickup or pickups would you suggest for a tighter bass, not so much looking for hotter, just more focused and it could be I have the pickup at the wrong height... Thanks!
