Default DeArmond 1100 Rhythm Chief in nickel?

It's only available in gold? You've got to be kidding me. Please tell me I'm wrong and I've missed something, but I can't find it in nickel or chrome.

They offer this in nickel: ...but it has no adjustable pole pieces, and more importantly, the D.C. resistance is 15.4K! as opposed to the 1000, which has a more appropriate D.C. resistance of 6.6K. Why the huge disparity? The only pickups I've seen measuring in the 15K range are humbuckers for metal players. I can't imagine that a single coil jazz pickup would sound right with that kind of resistance. So I would be inclined to instead purchase the 1100, but it's only available in gold... AARRGH!!!
