That's the one I like the best out of the last year or so.  If I ever quit spending money on bikes and 4 wheelers, I would like to get one. do not know who makes the pups.  Tom.  :)

 Just found on a Luthiers site that the pick ups on the WIDLXSPLTD are the new Duncan USM humbuckers especially made by Seymour Duncan for Washburn and Parker guitars. There are 2 sets with varying outputs, and I suspect they are the lower powered ones of the two types, which are still pretty pokey. Can't wait now until mine arrives!

That's a nice Christmas gift to yourself.  Let us know what you think of it.  I might get lucky and run across one some day.   Tom.  :)
