This variant of our PAF is equipped with an Alnico 5 magnet. This magnet provides a more punchy sound than its Alnico 2, 3 and 4 counterparts. It is more powerful, hollows out the midrange and highlights the bass and treble. We have developed a winding that goes perfectly with this very famous and used magnet. The bridge pickup is very hot for a vintage PAF, which brings mids, thickness and softens the highs. These are never aggressive. The microphone is precise, powerful but easily tamed by softening the attack of the pick or lowering the volume. The neck pickup, capturing the bass of the instrument very well because of its position, has a lighter winding. The sound is more open even if it remains meaty. It is perfect for 70’s & 80’s Hard Rock and the premises of Heavy Metal.
