    They have this set as well for just under $30. Milk, green and red. Hmm.

    I saw them on Amazon yesterday.
    Always thought that the Strat size double rail HB's were a bit thin to my liking, so the extra ceramic coil single might help fatten it up. Then I wonder why not just get a regular sized HB?

    I thought you might be talking about the P-Rails, then remembered they're not a dual rail. As far as P-rails & these pickups go, they're only as complicated as you want them to be. You can just hook them up like any other 4 conductor pickup if you choose.

    I'm a little curious about these. Obviously the gold foil is for show, but a dual dual rail might not suck.

    I ordered these off Amazon last week.

    I was trying to find a used Lil 59 online, then thought I'd see what Amazon had new, then saw this obviously SD Lil 59 inspired set for $41 (incl tx & shipping). Why not?

    Wow - Those $40.00 pickups for a Strat type guitar are really tempting looking. I recently purchased two Squire Strats for about $110.00 each and have been trying to convert the frets and necks into something that could actually be played by someone without having to seek medical attention. Do any of you folks out there have some practical experience with using these low-end price optioned pickups?

    Apparently Walmart may be in the forefront on cutting edge pup technology.

    Could I ask where this apology came from? It seemed so sincere, but also your first comment in the thread?

    I could tell you, but I don't think I'm allowed to. Super double secret stuff, apparently
