    PAF Repair Question

    Yeah even the newer stuff the color seems to make a diff. It's probable bs but I just like the purple stuff. Shit rub an old marks alot on it and it will even have the old benzene off gas odor.

    Winders-Any Advice?

    why the the 44. 43 so much beefier with an A8. I did a pup for an amp builder with 44, was able to get it to 34k. Had to use a ceramic 8 for it. Did the same wind got 21k much better tone. I don't know just not a fan of 44. Personal taste.

    So, the wire loops are where the black and white wires are. In all my years of playing moddi8ng and just being around musical instruments of that era i have never seen solder joints that clean. and last dont the winder sighn them before they are installed. I am not saying they arent legit...

    that wire sure is red. Hey if you want I have some end rolls of nice purple pe wire you can have. I also have some paper tape that looks pretty legit. I dont have any surround tape. The wire is old school, lol, from like my early days. Not MWS.

    Solder looks to clean at the loops, also if I recall the mag base was knurled. Coils are not correct. all the ones Ive come in contact with are more symmetrical. If you like the way they sound thats what important.

    Are these real Patent # Gibson pickups?

    I'm gonna call half and half. The braid looks legit like 2 strand and I am still 50 50 on the plate. But like James says everything else is to clean.

    A couple of other things gas are troubling, the 4 plate screws should be brass not steel, the lack of tooling Mark's on the top of the legs , the mag looks smooth cast, the maple spacer is way to new looking, but the worst is the lack of some of the square in the bobbins site hole.

    My 2 cents. They are rewound. The philister screws do not look right. Should be more of a kings crown. The slots look to deep and new. Just my opinion. Curious to see what the mag looks like.
