Do these ever come already on a item or they must be customized? Thx!

Master Thief requires 30 Pendulums to customize into armor. (always steals rare items)
Pickpocket........I forgot (increases chances of stealing rare items) --- "May all your Giant Enemy Crabs belong to your weak spot for massive damage."

Chance of a successful steal is not affected by master thief or pickpocket.
Once a successful steal has been determined, you will get one of two possible results, the common steal item(s), or the rare steal item(s).
Assuming you have successfully stolen something here is what you will get:
Master Thief: 100% chance of rare item Pickpocket: 50% chance of rare item, 50% chance of common item Neither: 25% chance of rare item, 75% chance of common item.
Master thief is much easier to get. You can get the required items from the chocobo race at remiem temple, or from bribing ultima weapon. If you want the rare item, use this.
Pickpocket is harder to get, you need to farm stratoavis in the monster arena. Since it is not as effective as master thief, it is probably not worth the effort.
If you want to obtain the common steal item, don't use pickpocket or master thief.

To answer your question, I have never seen them appear on any dropped item and I have played lots of complete games of FFX. I believe that they can only be obtained through customization. --- FFX FAQ - Blitzball Beginnings - available free by e-mail request to zorro007(AT)pacbell(DOT)net

A quick Ctrl+F through the monster database didn't turn up any enemies/bosses that drop master thief or pick pocket equipment.
