    With all my searching, I can't seem to find out what kind of magnets Lakland/Hanson Chi Sonic pickups use. Blades? Traditional double poles? Big single poles?

    Also, are they true single coil or in-line humbucking?

    Any opinions on the single coil versions vs the larger humbuckers?

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    Welcome to Hanson Pickups!

    They use Neodymium magnets, but not too much other technical info on that page. I have a single-coil here that I have yet to use; inspecting the underside, it looks like a bar magnet underneath, so there must be either ferrous slugs or a ferrous blade within the coil itself.

    Ok cool. Let us know how the single coil sounds when you try it out!
