    I had my guitar tech remove these when replacing them with my TV Jones pickups. They are out of my new (just bought new old stock 2 weeks ago) 2015 Center Block Jet. Check out the photos at the link below. If you don't like Reverb, I can send a proper Paypal invoice and do it that way. $100 for both.

    Great pickup combo! Someone should jump on this. I have this setup in my 5620T, and they sound fantastic together.

    Super HiLo would be in the neck, BT in the bridge

    I'm tempted to grab these myself for future projects...

    Super hilos are great pickups, and very hard to find as a part.

    If you're so inclined, you could probably convert these to Filter mounts by
    replacing the covers and baseplates with vintage-style Filtertron covers and baseplates. They sell the parts at Philadelphia Luthier Tools.

    As much as I'm not afraid of a challenge I'm not sure that those parts would fit those pups and it takes away the look of the originals plus it's another $60+ and shipping on top of the pup prices which takes me into almost new territory unfortunately.

    Ah, you're quite right. The other option would be to use the rings, but then you'd have to rout your guitar (and Cabronitas look so good without rings).
