    Original 1960 PAF Pickup, originally from an early 1961 Les Paul/SG Standard. This pickup has been inspected IN-HAND by a leading national vintage guitar tech/collector for over 30 years who has personally owned over 2 dozen 1958-60 Les Paul Bursts and every conceivable PAF-equipped Gibson electric.

    Has 14" lead, long-magnet, never re-wound, correct tooling marks, has the pre-61 features: black leads(vs the the black & white leads for each coil found on post-60 PAFS), and each coil has the lead coming out of the underside(vs coming out of the tape on post-60 PAFs).

    Output is 7.77 Ohms; perfect for the neck position. Has the sweet & warm top end, strong mids, and tight bottom; it's one of the good ones! Only cosmetic flaw is a 1/2" thin gash on bottom of bobbin with the flat poles(see pic). No big deal, especially with a cover on, but I did want to make sure to mention it. I do have a pair of matching PAF nickel covers from the same guitar this PAF came from, also available separately.

    Only reason I'm selling is: this PAF, along with an older Timbucker #19(available separately; they make a great pair!) were in a Rossington Les Paul I've decided to sell(I have 2) so I restored the Rossington back to original with the Burstbuckers.

    $1795 Paypaled/shipped to lower US 48.

    Then do it privately with class, not out in the open.

    Thanks, guys. Yes, one of the covers from the pair of 1960 covers listed separately was the original cover for this pickup.

    Open to offers for the entire set with covers; the PAF & Timbucker sound incredible together and this is a great opportunity to upgrade your existing PUPs! :thumb:
