Just put a set of PAF Nickels in my Hamer as the stocks were too hot for my tastes... Set em decked and soldered em in.... I always start decked to rings... Still pretty much decked... Love em. I found them to very tonally rich into a tube combo at both reasonable clean volume and heated up. Even the bridge pickup is both smoother and richer in content than I expected. Perfect for that Lester mass Hamer body.... Hot as two hells, they are not, PAFs weren't either. Had hot. Didn't like hot. If'n you want nuclear, these ain't it... Best ballpark hunnert bucks I've spent in a while... Very satisfied.... If I ever need another set of humbuckers, will go with those again in a heartbeat... Just thought I'd share the above just in case anyone curious about em... edro.
