The Djangobucker is available in two styles: a petit bouche model (black) which recesses into the fretboard cutaway oval-hole gypsy guitars for a "seamless" look,and the new 2019 10-year-anniversary model with a rosewood inlay. Both versions are only 6mm thick.

The Nuévo: A Versatile Single Coil Pickup for Jazz Guitars—New Chrome Finish.
Now with a sleek, classic chrome finish, the Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound and appearance to the traditional Stimer™ pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, this is not merely a "gypsy-jazz" pickup: the Nuevo excels on archtop jazz guitars and resonator guitars (According to Just Jazz Guitar Magazine: "Sonically, the 'Nuevo' has a 'P-90' sound" ). I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the dreaded “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer-type pickups. Furthermore, the Nuevo has a much higher output and lower noise than competing single-coil pickups. Available in a petit bouche model (with black woodgrain finish) which fits perfectly into the fretboard cutaway of oval-hole gypsy jazz guitars for a "seamless" look.
