The only ones I have seen are for acoustics but I am no expert on guitars

I visited Bill Lawrence's workshop. (Wilde Pickups) he uses neodynium and I have qtuners as well. Suprisingly I would say they do not have an acoustic sound.

Hummmm let me ask something:

The Aftermath has 3 different sizes of magnets... So, what would happen in a pickup if there are 2 bars instead of one - treble strings AII and bass strings with AIV?

the bars are parallel to the regular bar, not pieces placed in the center
you could mix different types, but they would affect all strings, of course
the gibson iommi pickup has alnico 2 and ceramic bars,for example
Riff Raff, Mules, Black Dog, VHII's, Cold Sweat

I have ceramic magnets in the bridge nailbomb on my Strat and it sounds amazing clean in all coil combinations :)

There are also a few other places you can get hybrid mag pickups.

In other news. The nailbomb sounds brutal with a neo magnet.

There are quite a few companies out there who do hybrid magnet pickups. Bulldog & the creamery are the first that spring to mind

the bars are really parallel to the normal bar, not pieces placed inside the centre
you might blend different types, but they might affect every one of the strings, naturally
the gibson iommi pickup has alnico 2 as well as ceramic bars,for example
