Any non routing middle PUP options?

I'm looking to add a middle pickup to a 90's LP Standard (just for the hell of it) but I'd like to avoid excessive routing required for any of the usual suspects.
Am I dreaming?
Best,

None that look like a standard humbucker. PLENTY of surface mount pickup options. gold foil, "jazz" mini humbuckers, sixtus thin pickups, the submarine pickup, cigar box style pickups....

You might be able to sneak a thunderbird pickup in that position, maybe.

But you're always going to need to connect that pickup to the wiring of the guitar somehow.

The best option might just be to get another guitar with 3 pickups.
