Ive wondered for a long time what the hottest measured PAF anyone know? I've also wondered how hot you could wind a PAF style pickup with 42 PE wire? I see the term "overwound" and "hot" thrown around anywhere from 8.3-9k. I've read that some PAF's were into the 10k area, but also heard that you can't fit that much wire on to the bobbins to get into the 10k area without going to a thinner wire. I'm not sure what is true. Any PAF gurus out there know the real story?
