Minihumbucker parts and magnets
Got word from another winder that Allparts is now selling minihumbucker parts. Anyone else know about this? If so, are their covers no-hole (think Firebird) or 6-hole (LP Deluxe)?  
Also, where do you get the right size magnets for these, and are they typically ceramic or Alnico?

You could call them and ask, and then tell us, saving our phone bill

I have e-mailed them already and am waiting for a reply.  
But I'm sure someone here must know what type of magnets they typically use.

Generally Alnico, but I don't recall if they are smaller or not...Seems like they were.

Firebird HB's have two magnets in them. One for each coil. They do not use pole pieces instead the magnet is placed in the coil much like blade type pickups. The whole thing is held together with the cover. The parts are probably mini hb's like are used in Les Paul Deluxes. These are made just like the regular sized Hb's only smaller.
