I have a stacked humbucker I made for the middle position on my guitar.
I put alnico poles going through both of them, but still, it seems lower output and doesn't match with the neck and bridge pickups.
Could I take out the pole pieces, use a dremel or something, and cut out the plastic between the spaces in the holes, so that I could make it one open rectangular space, and put in a ceramic bar magnet that's normally found in a humbucker?
The thickness of the bar magnet is about the same as the width of the polepieces.
So I'm basically making a rail pickup, if possible...

I think active EMG's are built somewhat like that, but I'm not sure though.
idk buy a cheap set and try on them? you never know until you try

VERY carefully. In fact, I may have to practice on old broken single coils.
I may have to file down some and round the edges on the bar magnet also.

Well, there is more magnetic mass with the solid bar that pole pieces. And any pickup I've modified from alnico to ceramic, almost always makes it hotter.
