    The only way that you will get them is if someone takes them out of their G&L.

    Well, if you want a set, why not find someone with a G&L they're not desperately using, have them take the pickups out, and then tell G&L they got a bass with no pups. They ship it, you get pups, you pay. Now, this might come to $150 or something, but thats not out of line at all for a good set of EMGs or Barts.

    Just a though.

    They will probably make you ship the bass to them. I could be wrong, but G&L has generally been pretty tight with parts. They really don't want basses other than their own made from their parts.

    Yep, email Tim and he'll quote you the current prices on them. They are surprisingly affordable for what they are (last time I checked which was a while ago they were 40-something dollars for the humbuckers and less than that for the P-style MFD).

    When i was looking around to get a G&L Semi Hollow ASAY they had the best prices and the most knowledgable staff, i reccomend them also.
