    I wonder if the 57/66 set are rejects from the 20 or so Het Sets EMG made for James to test out...

    They are the prototype Dave Mustaine set. His contract was ending with Duncan and he heard James talking about how he was developing the JH set at the Big 4 show in Cali. Long story short Duncan and Mustaine renewed the contract and these pickups had no name to be associated with so EMG just released them anyway.
