Alright, Searchbarred and nothing came up, so...

I just picked up a PRS SE Singlecut Trem yesterday and I like the pups in it, but I got it with the intention of swapping the pups out for higher end PRS pups. I know the 59/09's are pretty much the holy grail of PRS pickups and a may or may not have the chance to get some from a guy I work with. So my question is essentially to figure out a backup plan if I can't get the 59/09's.

TLDR; How do the Modern Eagle Pickups compare to the 59/09 pickups from PRS, and has anyone done a direct comparison with them?

These are amazing ones it is, but I want to get the 59/09's because I'm going to try to refinish the guitar to look like the the Colors album from BTBAM if I can get my hands on some good polyester lacquer. The Live DVD they did was recorded on those pups and it would really add to the guitar for me.

Dude, if it's about looks just get some stickers. They make them for humbuckers and they stay on.... sort of.

It's not all about looks though. I'm a huge fan of the tone on the live album. I know he uses d-activators now, but the tone and look of Colors is what I'm going for.
