Sure, granted. But what you say implies certain things about your level of experience.

When I started playing in the early '60s the hock shops of Oklahoma City were literally packed with vintage jazz guitars from the late '40s and '50s, generally selling for $50-$75. I grew up with that stuff.

Gibson does not make any off the shelf pickup that comes even remotely close to what was on those guitars and hasn't for half a century. If you really want that sound you have to go to a custom winder like Fralin or Lollar and specify your requirements.

And how much would a Lollar or Fralin would cost for a decent humbucking creamy archtop type of stringlette ?

Fralin PAF style pickups start at about $150. You can order with your choice of wire, number of windings, and magnet material and they will work with you to achieve the results you need. Call or email them.
