The alnico 3 magnet used for this PAF Humbucker pickup set is reserved for custom shop models of major brands of guitar and electric guitar
pickups. This magnet will give your sound the most vintage character with clarity. This “Lightwound” version, because it is slightly less wound than a standard PAF pickup, brings more dynamics and treble to your sound while slightly reducing the output level. Associated with the Alnico 3 which strengthens the low mids and cops the high mids you will have a clear sound, rich in harmony with body and a raspy crunch.Certainly the output level is lower but you will have enough underthe foot to make your amp roar. This set is ideal for Archtop, Hollowbody and half body from all walks of life and will work great on a Les Paul type guitar (mahogany body with maple top)to give it back a little finesse. The 49.2mm screw spacing isthe vintage Gibson guitars one. This set will therefore fit perfectlyon any Epiphone, Gibson or other brand equipped with a Tune-o-matic bridge or T.O.M for close friends.

Our clients talk about it

    “We have been spending some time with the new pickup you kindly provided.
    “It has been ‘burning in’ – pickups sound markedly better after they have been played a while as the wire and magnets pass current.
    “So far, we are really impressed. As you know, we have many Gibsons. Some have low-wind and normal Custombuckers.
    Your pickup seems more musical, expressive and tonally more pleasing.
    “You are pretty amazing as we receive many pickups and very few impress us, honestly.”

    Equipped with DELTA ROOTS, everything changes ... Plugged into the clean channel of a Hot Rod, we find sounds of a purity and transparency that we thought were reserved for the big boys. The outputof the pickups, deliberately lower, nevertheless allows to keep a little reserve in the volume knob without weakening the sound. Plugged into your favorite Overdrive, you discover a whole new range of sounds ... It's really TOP OF THE RANGE. I found exactly what I was looking for. The price is very fair and moreover, it is made in France by a craftsman: What could be better ...! RECOMMEND WITHOUT MODERATION ...
