Default Jackson pickups manufactured by....?

Ok, here's a question I've had for quite some time and would love to find out. Who manufactures the Jackson pickups? Is it Jackson themselves or are the ghost built by some other company? The reason I ask is I'd love to find out if there is a modern equivelent to the old Jackson J80 - J90 series ceramic humbuckers. Any thoughts?

I don't know if mine is the same or not? It came out of a 91ish charvel, the body is solid maple. I'm not sure if the body was a usa or not?
The base plate of the pickup says charvel and there is a sticker that says
J-90C. That is the only markings I could find. Sorry I counldn't be more help.

┤80s Jackson pickups and electronics were wound and assembled in house.

Interesting side note: Abigail Ybarra wound very many of them, she was employed at Jackson at the time

The closest thing (readily available today) to a J90BC (ceramic J-90) is a Duncan JB with a Ceramic magnet from a Custom in it, the 90B is closest to a JB.

The J80C is (roughly) a lightly underwound Duncan Custom, the J-80 is a lightly underwound C-5.

The J50 and 50BC are A-5 and Ceramic ┤59s, the J-95 is it┤s own beast....

These are the Japan made ones... still ok, but IMO very much akin to the Duncan Designed as far as quality goes... I personally prefer the USA made ones ;)
