Double cream humbuckers

There is an effort being made to allow double cream humbuckers to once again be made and sold by anyone, they're talking about it on MLP.

I'd love double cream Seth Lovers, but Seymour Duncan isn't offering them any more, even as a floor shop custom.

Sounds like a good idea to me. My first set of custom pickups (way back when), was a pair of DiMarzio Super Distortion pups and they were double cream. I played those boogers for nearly 20 years.
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

I just learned about that lawsuit by DiMarzio against Duncan a few days... months?... ago. I thought it was pretty silly when I read it. I mean... how can you trademark a color?!

It would be cool if Seymour could start making cream colored ones. I think his "antiqued" white pups probably come close anyway. Maybe one could just buy cream-colored covers? I think I've seen them. Maybe not considering my general lack of knowledge in the guitar field, I seem to learn at least one new thing almost every day. I just play 'em.
