Finally started getting around to modifying my strat, which for the past few years has just sat hanging on the wall. I got the neck and the action to feel just right, and started to swap out some of the stock components that I disliked about the guitar. All it needs now are some real pickups! I would love to find a SSS strat set, all wired and ready to put into the pickguard, but would also take a SSH set, or a HH set. I know i've seen a few prewired pickguards floating around the bay with the older Alembic single coils, but I figured I would see if anyone around here has any. Hell I'll take anything, old skylark pickups, Series pickups, etc (a strat with series electronics, I couldn't even imagine!)
email firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of any, or have anything you are looking to get rid of. Ever since I sold my 2 alembics, I have been craving that sound. I figure it would be cheaper then buying another series 1, and will likely be the precursor to my next big Alembic purchase.

All the best in finding some pickups and electronics It's worth doing. There are at least a couple of us here who have upgraded our strats in the same manner and the sound difference is amazing. I'm just waiting for mine, (over a year now), to come back from being refinished.

I have a new hhs set complete. V T 5 way switch. No pickguard though. Alembic store price $1300, my price $650 shipped. Never installed.
You may try to find a used set or a guitar that already has them loaded.
