I'm having a custom guitar made, a single cutaway archtop with one pickup. Think jazz guitar. My choices for pickup are between a Kent Armstrong and a Bare Knuckles PAF. I'm having a hard time deciding. Anyone got experience or feedback on these pups?

Given the smorgasbord of humbucking pickups available for the application at hand, is there a reason that Bare Knuckle and Kent Armstrong are the only options you mention in your post ?

DeArmond floating pickup, or Gibson BJB or Gibson Johnny Smith floaters.

On an archtop I would have to try Lollar Imperials...
