I'm particularly curious about newer designs that manage both to do something new and impressive. I'm pretty familiar with many of the pickups out there, especially PAF repros and similar. So far my exposure to newer designs is limited - a couple I have tried and like are the EMG X 89 and the Wilde (Lawrence) micro coils. I'm not really in the market for anything specific, just curious what's out there I might not be aware of. A couple of designs I've been curious about are the Lace Alumitones and Zexcoils, but not curious enough to buy. Anyway, if you've been impressed with something, tell me about it and some details - what's different in the design, what you like about it, styles it works for, etc.
