    I will give you five dollars if you find these on google or anywhere else...They are humbuckers, the single coil ones are popular and you are likely to find those...No names on these, so I don't know who makes them...

    I mixed a little Dark Walnut gel stain with a little bit of penetrating Golden Pecan stain.

    That looks really good Mark. The gold pickups really make it shine. I'd bet she would look even better with gold hardware.
