    AFAIK. Something is different about the website. If I go to the link in my history with "home page" in the URL, it goes to an error page. Just the proper domain pulls up their website and it looks a little different.

    Yes, but if you try to purchase, it gives an error. I've tried to contact via the email address, but they don't respond.
    I bought a p-46 pickup in October 2014 which was dead on arrival, and returned it by agreement, and since then they have not answered my emails. Never received a replacement. But since I could use a P-46 for various reasons (looking for a replacement P Pickup for a 5-string), I wanted to buy a new one. But seems they are not answering still. And as mentioned, the email gives error on PayPal.

    Becky and Shannon are still up and running AFAIK. I placed an order on 15-Dec and received it on 19-Dec. I recently placed another, which went though without incident, and expect to receive a shipping notice in a couple of days.

    I finally got a response from Becky, too, so they are absolutely in business. Hope to get a P-46 in my bass soon. :)

    Good to hear it.
  12. Really good to hear! I hope to have a few soundclips recorded this week of the p-46 and l-90 pickups. Both pickups sound huge and crystal clear, couldn't be happier.

    I ordered a set of P-46 last week and was surprised with no email confirmation. I called yesterday with no answer. Love to have it as all the other parts are ready to go for my new build.

    It will arrive. As mentioned several times in this thread, email is not their strong suit. Building fantastic pickups at wonderful prices, however, is. Nobody has ever been stiffed by Wilde.

    Ordered a J45L (bridge) for a newly acquired 2016 Fender P5 to convert to a P/J.

    I've got 3 P5's, 2 P/J 4 stringers and have owned and sold about 5 J style basses, so it was inevitable,...;)

    I've done a Jazz, a P/J and a P replacement on 4 bangers with their pickups since about 2011 and every bass I put them in has sounded amazing!

    Did leave a phone message earlier in the week and just emailed for an estimate on timing for shipment. Have not heard anything back yet but not too concerned after seeing updates above!
