A much hotter high output twinblade would be great.

Yup - A little hotter version would be nice. Tried a configuration in a Bolt with a bridge TBH, didn't do it for me.
Perhaps even an alnico magnet version, if that'd be hot enough (I think they're ceramic mags currently in the TBH).

Ceramic is stronger than AlNiCo, and is probably needed to improve efficiency on such a small design. I don't think the magnets are the issue, but changes in the wire gauge, or number of winds, will ramp up the output, but for the size it may require going to a stacked coil design.

Interesting. In my Bolt I find the twinblade to make an excellent bridge pickup next to the two AP11s.

But everybody has their own tastes. :)

I have a TL60 with the old S60, AP11, and TBH60 from neck to bridge, and that setup works very nicely.

However, the TBH can be overpowered by the full size humbuckers (C22B, M22SD in particular), so that may be why the request. As far as mixing with single coils, they're spot on. Just a hint more heat, with a really good, even sound, and quiet.

I would definitely be on board with this. Many of the other makers that have all blade pickup setups have one that is hotter for the bridge. Maybe wound a bit more to give it some more beef.
