Vintage 57 Humbucker Pickup

The Vintage 57 pickup is our rendition of Seth Lover's original "Patent Applied For" (P.A.F) humbucker pickup design. We draw upon the early P.A.F. models of the late 50's for this pickup because we feel, and many players believe, they possess the best tonal qualities-- qualities so unique that they are still among the most desired guitar sounds today. We have fabricated and sourced the finest and most accurate vintage-style components available. We have also concentrated the greatest attention to our winding formula in order to reflect the mechanical characteristics of the Leesona 102 coil winding machine from which early P.A.F.s were wound. As a result, we have recreated a pickup that is close in appearance and possesses the sonic character reminiscent of the original P.A.F.s. The ideal mix of tight bass, rich and creamy midrange and a clear, sweet top end strikes the perfect balance in this exclusive vintage-style pickup. It is wonderful, warm, vintage tone at its best. Specifications: Bridge DCR: 8.1K Ohm, Neck DCR: 7.2K Ohm, Magnet: Alnico 2.
