Different magnets (stronger/weaker), number of windings on a magnet, stuff thats inside the pickup. I dont know much about it but it effects the power of the pickup and the tones that come out of it. Whether you want it to have a wicked distortion or a really jazzy lcean sound.

Different pickups can boost different frequencies, gives a different texture to the sound whether it's magnet strength, material ( ceramic etc ) or active/passive.

both right, magnets as well as windings all compliment your sound in some way. the more windings the fatter your pickup will sound. magnets also matter quite alot
ceramic, punchy/bright
alnico V, in the middle
alnico II, soft/ warm
