Hmm, "Active" sounding isn't really what I'm after, but it's only $230, and if I don't like it it's easy enough to eBay.

Out of stock until the 30th, so going to email 'em directly for the polished set.

Pass, Chris.

Do you want something contemporary, or something more vintage-oriented? I'll be grabbing Dimarzio Heavy Blues shortly, so if you want to wait until after I pick them up to see how they stack up against the Cruisers (which you've heard) and the stock Fenders (which you own), gimme a week or two. However, since that's, like, the antithesis of your buying M.O., I'd suggest one of the following if you want something pretty traditional - either a Fender Texas Special set, or a Lindy Fralin Blues set, probably a bit overwound. The TS's are about as classic as a "hot Fender" set gets, while the Fralins are sort of the botique aftermarket alternative - Fralins are about as good as "traditional" singlecoils get, evidently, and if I was going for a traditional non-hum-canceling singlecoil, that's what I'd be looking at. (Though, I remember rather liking some of the Wolfetone singlecoil clips).

The Duncan Quarter Pounders are a great halfway house between traditional stratty single and P90, although much closer to Strat. Killer pickups.
