    Hey, just wondering if it's possible to get a jangly sparkly sounding pickup out of a PAF housing, I got a 335 style, and would like to put something in the bridge and would like to keep the aesthetics.

    Who could build me one?

    I’d guess Zhangbucker could build you one.

    You should also consider the Fralin Big Singles (though they do have a humbucker style cover). Lots of jangle, really cool unique pickups.

    Seymour Duncan Psyclones.

    I haven't tried em, but they're supposed to be Filtertrons in a regular-sized HB dimensions.

    Since you live in Brisbane, I would suggest a shout out to Mick Brierley. A great pickup winder located in Adelaide. I'm sure he could hook you up. Also, the Zhangbucker suggestion is a great one. Dave is a fantastic winder/person and excel's in nailing the tones/options you're looking for.

    Good luck on your search @Zesty-feline. Let us know how it turns out.
