How about the 78 model. Its 9k with 42 wire and A2 mag but sounds really open and alive for a A2 pu. You could put a A5 in it.
The 78 is a very cool pickup. It has a very "chewy" (to rip off Lew's word) midrange and an overall aggressive sound. It's really hard to describe, but it feels very alive and sensitive under your fingers. The 78 is VERY different from the Brobucker like the difference betwen a 59 and a Seth. The Brobucker's wire is the same used in the 59 (plain enamel) and the 78 uses something else...I'm guessing formvar.
