: Try Cold Spring Electrical works. They have a lot of old PU's and electronics. That's a pretty nice old guitar, your next step would be to contact a shop that specializes in archtop jazz guitars.
Try Gbase.com. They have lots of dealers and repair shops listed. you can search by state.

I just looked up a 1945 ES-300. The pick up on it is a P-90, AKA Soapbar pickup, it has what's known as a dogear pickup cover. These pickups are still made by Gibson, and replicas are made by Seymour-Duncan (and probably other manufacturers too). Good luck
