    Fine, but what about these pickups??
    Who's the source? (Contact info?)
    And the fire??

    My mistake. It is RON Thorn, not Pete. He is available through the Thorn Guitars site. He makes his pickups in house, so I imagine you could contact him about what you might like. I made it through the fire and mudslide, but not everyone was so fortunate. It profoundly inconvenienced everyone, but it totally destroyed some. Still, disaster and danger often brings out the best in people, and that sure happened around here. I think everyone involved now has an expanded appreciation of public service workers, especially those who take risks to protect everyone else.

    :jo
    ah, that Thorn. Got it.... I thought they were some new mystery beta pickup since I couldn't find a Pete Thorn luthier. Sometimes it's right in front of you.
    Good luck w/ the community rebuild, and enjoy the Esq!
