Does anybody here sell those single coil flat bar pickups called "Flatsos"? 
The low profile design really works well with cbgs.
I got one from Bill Jehle awhile back, but he doesn't handle them anymore.

One guy who recommended these to me says he cuts off the tab part and just glues it to the top of the box.

Ted C is building some very nice looking low profile pups he's calling the Downunder:

I have tried to figure out how they are able to sell stuff so cheap with free shipping. All I can figure is that the Chinese government is subsidizing the shipping to the US, for the purpose of putting the squeeze on US merchants... or that these sellers are just fronts for collecting valid buyer e-mail addresses, shipping addresses, and PayPal user account information.

Because the Chinese workers who make this stuff will work for something like 50 cents an hour. And because shipping costs are determined to a large degree by handling costs that aspect is also governed by similar sweatshop labor rates.

The only way you or I are going to be able to compete on those terms is to reduce ourselves to the appalling living conditions you find out there. That's free market capitalism for you...
