A lots of the odd-looking pickups look just like GFS pickups (guitarfetish.com). I wouldn't be surprised if they were the same. Who else would think to make a normal humbucker-sized Fender Wide Range pickup look-alike?

I've had good and bad GFS pickups but never mind the bad as they're so cheap to try out and the good are GREAT. I dig the 90s (mean and dream) as well as their "retrotron". The neo-vins are blah and I didn't like the 'lil kicker for the tele bridge.

Searching around a bit, it looks like GNB makes PRS SE pickups and they also mention on their "about" page that they make EMG Select and Hz pickups.

I'm mainly interested in the retro stuff for the housings , they could be re wound if they're crap.

This Ebay seller used to have a bunch of that kind of stuff, but I don't see much now:

Bezdez had some too, but now I see mostly ordinary stuff and some strange-looking humbuckers.

Eastwood has some flat-mount retro-looking stuff, too:

I've been picking up dead Dearmonds and soapdish Kays and having them rewound.

I have a set if his minis in the vanguard. I am happy with them.

The site you found is probably an OEM for a whole bunch of people. The mins I got for the VG had an Epi part # on the ring.
