    Evan, I'm interested in the hybrid, but I was wondering if I can order it reversed from the way they have it. I want the screws to be the custom coil & the slug to be the 59 coil. This will be going into an angled bridge Strat. I also want the screw coil to be the one that is active when tapped, so that it will be in the exact space of a Strat bridge pu. Is there anybody at Duncan I can talk to about this prior to placing my order w/my guitar shop?

    Sweet. I look forward to trying these in my Les Paul. Are these available to purchase yet?

    For a deviation from stock as significant as that, you would have to order it from the Custom Shop. You can e-mail Maricela and she'll quote you a price and lead time.

    To Ed, the reason I was inquiring is to see if this can be made for me, instead of me having to make it myself. But since it is going to be a custom job, and cost the price of a custom pu, I may as well make it myself anyway. I already have the custom custom. I just need a 59b. I want it like this, because it is going in a HSH configuration w/angled bridge, and it is going to have coil splits for the neck & bridge pickups. The screw coils will align up exactly like Strat pickups line up.
