3-hole pickup rings

Hello everyone,

I did see 1 other post regarding this but no solid answer, so decided to ask anyway, ..

I have recently bought a guitar as a project to do up, nothing fancy or expensive but a good little project for me,
However it came by post this morning and upon checking found that the pickup rings have 3 holes as opposed to the normal 2 im used to seeing,
after some extensive searching found a site in the USA selling what looks like the ones i need :
http://www.reproguitarparts.com/#!/~/product/id=5662733

however i would much prefer to purchase from the UK for time reasons mainly

Would anyone here know a place UK based that would sell these ?
I have already searched Ebay and had no joy

As you guys here at UG have never let me down with perls of wisdom i was hoping there are some experts here that could at least point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

None of my regular suppliers sell what you want, but you could use standard rings and drill the required holes yourself

I had thought about this but was worried about having the 1 existing hole looking vacant, definitely a consideration if i cant get lucky,
Thanks for the reply

Unfortunately the wrong size
Seems there are a few different versions of this unit with varying distances between the pup screws,

In the mean time will be purchasing normal 2 screw pup rings, ..

but definitely still open to suggestions if anyone has any other info regarding these impossible to obtain pup rings

Thans for your efforts

Ran into this when i put the NYIIs in my grestch, i ended up putting a clipped screw with a nut behind it on one of the holes that didn't have any wood behind it. Just for looks basically.
