that's a GOOD NEWS last year I was lucky to find on the market an used 57/08 pair for my Bernie Marsden and was simply GREAT However, Paul Reed Smith - a really nice person who is able to transmit his passion to all of us - a few years ago said that "This whole building [the PRS factory staff] wants to sell these pickups - the 57/08, 59/09 and 53/10s - separately," concludes Smith. "But the day we do that is the day we sell less guitars, because someone will buy the pickups and won't buy a guitar. That ain't gonna happen… and you can quote me on that!" So I did it! (MusicRadar 2011: http://www.musicradar.com/reviews/guitars/prs-me-quatro-486824) Naturally things can change as well as the market! What I do think is that 57/08s have been the best ones (for the market) among the 5X XX's pups group for years. But recently PRS produced something even better: 58/15LTs Are those the new "holy grail" PAF? apparently yes, looking how the SC and DC 594 have been commented!
