I believe he makes his own.

According to his web site he winds his own single coil pickups.

He winds his own single coils or if there is no visible pickup on front he uses piezos with a foot pedal preamp when recording...he has a fantastic sound!!!

Most of Mike's guitars are a simple piezo disc, no built-in pre-amp.

That surprises me that he can get such good sound and charge topdollar with a disc piezo setup.
