This seems the best kept secret regarding pickups. Nothing in search. This product excites me. He also makes breakout boxes.

Nice guy. I spoke with him last year. He's willing to do custom work, etc.

I've got a couple of his humbuckers.  Installed one in an instrument (since sold) about a decade ago and have another at the shop.  Nice stuff.  Very "rustic" build quality. Entirely solid and functional, but not fit and finish is a little rough.  I like the aesthetic, myself.

 Ubertar has been around for a while and has been a supporter of many a creative guitar project.

My personal assessment is that if I was using hex pickups with modeling or pitch to MIDI, then I'd go for a pickup that I can put as close to the bridge as possible and has the max string separation.  So far the GK-3 and Cycfi pickups seem to be great options for that.  But I might use the Ubertar if I was going to simply put the Hex pickup at the neck or standard bridge position and I wasn't doing modeling or Pitch to MIDI.

My 2c.

@Elantric: the lack of search results may have been a glitch and I didn't follow it up, or a mis-spelling I didn't notice.

@Rhcole: his site says he's not doing custom work right now. I'm waiting to hear back from him on some basic questions.

@vanceg: my interest is in traditional pick-up functionality that is hex, though. Are there different designs for neck and bridge? For the latter, what would it compare to in output and sound?

Cycfi Research pickups are far more advanced and a better choice for polyphonic guitar processing.
