    Alembic will sell you all the pickups individually if you ask them nicely, except the Series single coils, unless they're replacements. Susan told me on the phone a while back that they much prefer to sell the pickups including the electronics package as it makes it easier for people to add them into a custom, or a mod job, and get a successful result. The AXY'x are a little lower in output than some other aftermarket pickups but should integrate OK into most decent preamps OK.
