They wind their own, in house.Maybe. 2,300 sets is a lot, though. Assume they make 115 guitars in Maryland a day. Maybe 20% of those, tops, use 85/15 or 58/15 LT pickups. That's something around four and a half months worth of PUs that they just dumped onto the market.
I have no idea if they order PUs in batches or if they produce them constantly. Either way, that's a lot of inventory to dispose of. Makes me think that either they're expecting a big slowdown in orders or they've got something new. Might be a combination of those two, too. In any event, it seems like something changed in terms of production planning.
