    I am sure some of you guys got this Email from Jeff, but just in case some did not, the website for HighOrder pickups is down, as is his Email. Here is the Email I got from him last night. Hope he doesnt mind me posting this.

    Hello Folks,

    I'm broadcasting this message since my website went down several days
    ago and the forwarding address (Jeff AT HighOrderpickups.com) isn't working either. It was a surprise to me, but I've learned a lesson about owning your own domain and webspace. I just wanted to assure folks waiting on orders that I'm still working hard on them and haven't fallen off the map. If you've tried to contact me at the aforementioned e-mail address and not been successful, it's because of my current website challenges. The fellow at tech support says it could be another 48 hours before transfer of the domain is complete so it might be a couple more days
    before things are restored.

    Due to the holidays and some family issues, I'm somewhat behind on
    orders. By the end of this evening, the coils for all remaining October
    orders will be finished and I'll kick into overdrive on final assembly.
    I should have them all shipped by mid-week next week and start work on
    November orders. For orders from early November, it'll be a bit longer
    than the 8 to 10 week esitmate. I'm very sorry for the extended wait,
    but I'll do my best to get caught up and try to get back inside that
    timeframe for end of month orders.

    Just wanted to keep y'all informed. Again, my apologies for the
    extended wait. In the meantime and in the future, you can contact me at:

    highorderpickups "AT" cfl.rr.com

    No problem Marcello. Just didnt want folks freakin cuz the website was down and/or emails were coming back.

    Lol, yeah, I ordered late November, so I am guessing around Febuary for getting em. But I am keeping patience. Or trying to anyway.

    Well you guys are in for a real treat. I've had a set for about 6 weeks now and they are nothing short of awesome. I dig em so much I ordered another set with the same specs (7.8/8.5 AlNico 3 mags and 42 gauge wire). If the second set delivers like the first, I intend to order several more sets with different winds.

    When you get em, let us know what you think.

    highorder pickups are well worth the wait..

    i have used several pairs of jeffs pickups in guitars ranging from my beloved 65 sg to agile les paul copies and floyd rose strats and gibson les paul specials and i am always very pleased with the tone....

    This set will be my third pair. I have a guitar outfitted with a Maximus and a A3 8.5k. The other guitar sports a pair of his A2 P90's. Those pickups are the real sleepers! Amazing tone!

    Dang,

    I ordered 2 sets in late December/early January. I emailed Jeff to finalize the specs and haven't heard from him.:( All I heard was a email saying he would inform me when they ship. How can he inform me when they ship, when we haven't finalized the specs?:confused:

    I'll just wait to hear from him.

    Did you try him at the address listed in the first post above? He's had issues with his web host for the business. Those problems included that email address associated with highorderpickups.com

    He cranked out a might lump of pickups over the last 3-day weekend.

    Mine are his "new" wind. Im dying to get them in and try them out.

    What's the new wind?

    He didn't exactly say, or maybe if he did he'd have to kill me. Supposed to be more PAF-like. It is different from his typical wind.

    Pickups installed and the guitar is ready for strings.
