In the boutique winders list someone said Holmes isn't selling pickups anymore, does anyone know this to be fact, or just rumor???
IT was ME who said it, and He was basicially just over the mountains from where I live. He is into other endevours , and may not ever come back to the Pickup biz . I had it on darn good authority before I posted this, I've had in my distant past tasted my own shoe leather enough times, I always check my sources now before making such statementsIt's true. He quit making them about 3-4 years ago. His last retail prices were around $600 or so for a pair.
Well, I didn't hear it from you, sir. He had a sale on them some time ago, and announced he was going back to just building guitars, and IIRC, the only way you could get his pickups was to buy a guitar with them in it. This was before I left the LPF, I'm pretty sure, & that's been almost 4 years now. I know the last pairs were going for $600 (+) and there was a long list, or wait.IT was ME who said it..
