Good deal on original Fender Wide Range Humbuckers?

Hey all,
A buddy of mine has a whole slough of old parts stashed away, and among this collection is a pair of '73 Fender WRHB's, complete with original wiring harness. (2 pots and a 3-way switch) He's asking $250 for the whole package, and that sounds pretty fair to me. Is this something I should pick up? I hear pretty good things about them, but have no idea what the going rate is these days. So, should I buy them now and keep them until I find a guitar to put them in, or pass? Thanks in advance for the help!

I saw Steely Dan back when they were on the club circuit.

That's a hot deal. Buy them, buy him dinner, and hope he's still your pal when he finds out what they're worth! I feel like the last one I saw on the bay was like $300 for one.
I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.

I've seen them as cheap as $250 each. Your buddy is offering you a great deal (assuming they work).
And.. no one is gonna say, "Oh Lordy, what did you do to your guitar to get that incredible sound." No one, so do yourself a favor, leave it alone. -Ron Kirn
