Hey, I know ur a fan of Father Iommi, and idk if u have seen them before, but this place in the UK called Oil City Pickups has a set of Tony Iommi tribute P90s called "The Void" they are wound to, like, 21k at the bridge and 17k at the neck, and if you talk to the guy (because each set is made to order) he can even do a humbucker sized version.
