The Fender Catalog has them listed as PN 099-2104
The Fender Mod Shop Samarium cobalt Noiseless Pickups.
This is the Single-Single-Single set-up.
Or visit Bill Lawrence direct at: http://www.billlawrence.com
You can call them with any questions and anyone you talk to there will help
They are run just like a traditional Mom and Pop operation (pretty nice

Are the newer Fender SCN's available separately? Possibly from Bill
Lawrence (who designed them as I understand it) ?
I think they are pretty amazing. Traditional Strat sound without the noise.

So how do people deal with that hum from single coil pickups and
certain amps ... are there just some amps that single coils cant
be used with, or is there a way to defeat the hum (without using
humbuckers obviously) ... or ... ?
The hum has little to do with the amp, and has everything to do with
the guitar, and sometimes the cable. Single coil pickups tend to pick
up radio frequency waves from a variety of sources - some of the worst
offenders are your computer screen, TVs, and lighting dimmers. The rest
of the guitar's wiring is also suceptible. It's in the nature of the
beast, and there's little you can do to prevent it. However you can
minimize the effect by carefully shielding the cavities inside the
guitar as thoroughly as possible, using shielding paint or metal foil
and tape. It also helps also rewire the guitar so that everything is
solidly grounded at one point (known as "star grounding".)
Like, i normally use a Line6 POD which has some 32 emulated amp
models, and most of them have a distinct hum when using a single
coil pup (including pretty much all the overdriven amps) but some
dont (all of which are clean models), so should I only be using
clean amps with single coils?
I'm certain the hum is there no matter what amp emulation you're using.
It's just that the high gain models amplify the hum and buzz enough
that you're more aware of it.
