From the folks who make the 5$ makes it Holla pups, here's their slim humbucker. I cut off the fretboard to make a recess for the pup. Gluing on wings to hold it's cover.

Hey Jerry. Boy this pickup sounds great. Pure clear tone and lots of power. It fit in the height of my fretboard. I can't play it on video as I took a bad fall yesterday and tore up both hands. I can hardly peck out a comment, let alone hold a guitar. Soon as I can I'll post a sound sample.
