I bet Duncan and DiMarzio both have single coil and Humbucker models with the same exact winds but they modified/lowered the magnetisms which created a different pickup model.  Wills Easy Guitar (You Tube) recently had a video “dummying down” a single coil pickup to change the tone and output.  It only took a rare earth magnet and a few seconds of time.  When the rare earth magnet repelled against the top of the pickup the output decreased and tone got thicker.  When the rare earth magnet was flipped over the pickup got more powerful and brighter.  Pretty impressive video.

Will also used to have a video “debunking” the effect of magnetic pull on strings by holding industrial magnets near the strings and A/Bing note sustain. I’m not claiming to take one side or another - It just puts the other video in a different perspective.

Will is a very intelligent guy.  With the proper earth magnets, people can alter their pickups at any given time.  To go to a hot to vintage pickup by  gaussing and de-gaussing is an interesting concept.  Magnets are very cheap, and to be able to alter your pickups for $10 is a great concept.
