    I have always really liked the way this guitar sounded, and was looking into new pickups, and was hoping to find some pickups in a similar range. I was looking into the guitar and found the information posted at the bottom, and was wondering if anyone knew if it was accurate. I know the guitar recently sold, so I was curious if any recent measurements were taken, or if anyone knew anything.

    I remember hearing Joe say it was heavy or loud sounding or something like that. The bridge is showing 10.3 which seems really high to me, and I never see winders getting anywhere near that for a PAF style pup. Also, if anyone knows what magnet is in the bridge, that would be nice to know as well.

    Thanks!

    I would speak to Dave Stephens (Stephens Design). He makes the best PAF I've ever heard next to real ones. He's a super cool dude and will work with you to get you what you want. Ill be trying Spot one of these days since a guy I know just bought it. I'll check the DC resistance and confirm. I'm pretty excited I must admit. :dude:
