So, it's going to take 14 years for the pickups to be released and they'll just generally sound "meh".

I don't think they will be comparable to Duke Nukem Forever, if that was your indirect reference.

I don't know why they would make pickups to sound like a jazz/JB when they basically have that with the C22J/B combo. To my ear they are strikingly similar in sound.
We are entitled to our own, wrong, opinions.

Guitar theorem: G=X+1 where G= guitars one needs, and X = guitars one has.

Do or do not; there is no understand.

I just feel like it will take so long that it won't even matter in the end.
When it takes that long the pickups need to be absolute magic or they can't live up to expectations.
