There really aren't any pickups like the j-50bc on the market however taking a PAF and changing the magnet to ceramic will get you close!
You could also get the je-1000 first and install and decide wether you like it with your current pickup before switching (:
and yeah this should probably be moved
I'm thinking I'll do that right now, if anything I'll just get a J-50BC. I thought I read somewhere that the J-50 was made to be a clone of a pickup that was on the market at the time and Jackson didn't want to pay to use it in their guitars, so I figured there might still be something similar out there.
