I had originally been posting about this situation in Mick Reid's post but feel I should update you all in a new subject.
Got my pickups from Becky Lawrence on Monday after waiting 4 months with very bad communication from them. They are as ordered and after installing them I am a happy Ragpicker.
Spoke to Becky yesterday and mended fences with her. I thanked her for such a great product and she appreciated that.
She did tell me that they are in the process of moving the business and would like it if people waited a month to place new orders.
I will probably order a set for 1 of my Strats after the month hiatus.
Anyway I did get a lot of comments from you all so I thought I would update you here instead of in Mic's post.

Glad to hear that you are satisfied with the product, and that you "mended fences" with Becky. You won't be disappointed with the Strat pickups!

OK, now I'm going to hijack *your* thread!

No, just kidding!
Glad to hear they worked for you.
You're virtue of patience is admirable and well beyond mine. There could be a lesson here for me...

Maybe I'll give them a second chance down the track.

Sorry Mick, I realized I hijacked your thread right away. But once everyone commented It was to late. Give them a month or so then give em an order. Tag you're it ! They really do sound great.

"...once everyone commented It was to late."

LOL! - no worries. Yeah these things take on a life of their own sometimes!

How do you find the output of the WB's compared to your old single coils? Equal; hotter; lower?

I ended up putting a pair of Lace sensors in the Dlx Lone Star.

I guess I'll have to buy another guitar to try the Lawrence pups in!

They are hotter than the Vintage Noiseless that we're in there. Surprisingly high output actually. Working in the studio later today so will get to hear them more "in context". The original single coils that we're in the thin line got put in the partscaster I built while I was recuperating from my motorcycle wreck. I never liked them in the thin line.

O.K. It's been a long time but, time for an update. I am in love with these pickups. They made the axe come to life. I also switched this guitar to DeAddario NYXL strings. Pickups are quite high output so I am getting tons of "bite". Really very clean until right at "10" on the guitar then a nice OD tone comes on. I haven't even wanted to play my other Teles since this change.

I'm really pleased with my two sets of Lawrence/Wilde Noisefree pickups. They perform exactly as I hoped; Vintagey when clean/low gain, they hold together when pushed and noisefree.
