But the chances finding a set are much higher on this forum than elsewhere...see the discussion about the Orpheum 12 strings from the last few days. Almost impossible to find one but suddently 2 were available.because the chances of finding what he needs are pretty slim
Mike also said he would be interested in an "SD-1" which what he means is the 1997-1998 HB-1 with Duncan guts...which is basically a Duncan SH-1 or a "59"...hence the suggestion on a Duncan (splittable) SH/JB...
but Ken Nash has one "SD-1" (97-98 Duncan HB-1) on his website...theguitarmechanic.com
"SD-1" is the wrong name for that pickup. someone meant to write "SH-1" a long, long time ago, and got it wrong...and here we are.
the "Fender-HB-1" (1999 into 2000s) has been reportedly referred to as the "SD-1" in an odd out of context report online...likely because thos pickups are smaller than HB-1s and are the same size as a Duncan "SH-1" which can go into any guitar/Gibson etc, and so the Fender is the SD-1 because it is a drop-in replacement like a Seymour Duncan humbucker (and not like an HB-1...)

A good summary about the two HB-1 look-alike SD Guild pickup versions before and after FMIC bought Guild is in GADs blog post:
One of the questions I see on the guitar forums quite a bit is, “What kind of pickups does this Guild guitar have?” Since I’ve posted in many of these threads, I seem to get a lot of emails with the same question. I thought that I might write up a quick summary of the …www.gad.net
The one Ken has (in the b/w picture) is the "SD-1" which should look on the bottom like the one GAD shows. It has different bobbins than the bobbins used in normal SH-1 pickups. The winding specs were close to SH-1 however according to SD's Evan Skopp.

The late 90ies FMIC made HB-1 was based on the FMIC own humbuckers and I don't know if FMIC ever called that version SD-1 in any literature as it sounds reading Evan Skopps comments.

@Eric: Just curious, what was that "odd out of context report online" that you mentioned?
