I have a set of his vintage p90s in a LP special I built. Great P90s that can cover anything. They're a tad brighter than the original pu's in my 1959 Es225, but not really the same guitar either.
Note that they are potted by default, so don't forget to request them unpotted if that's what you...
I totally agree all Arandall said.
It's sometimes misunderstood, but if you want to earn your living from what you do, you have to take all costs in consideration, as well as a margin. Components are not all. Time, machines, design, research in the case of a replica...also have a cost.
The guitar is one out of three I've spotted in my search for an ES-175. This one is a 1960, but there's also a 1959 and a 1957. I don't have pictures of the latter's PAF, the seller should send some on monday, as well as the readings from the pickups. The 1959's PAF look very clean...
Thank for your reply! I just received the book you co-wrote with Mario Milan yesterday and was hoping you would chime in :)
I'll probably stay clear of this guitar unless the seller has pictures of the inside.
To PAF specialists, could you tell me if these ones look the real deal?
I have no specifical reason to doubt, but they're on an 1960 ES-175, which model has the original PAF's robbed more often than not.
I'm on the hunt for a vintage ES-175. I reduced my search to PAF years, so basically 1957-1962.
I'm now trying to choose between 3 guitars. I live in a small european country, so buying locally is not an option, and I will likely have to make a choice without trying the guitar. That...
Thanks! I've been a long time reader. I have two Norlin's : a 1977 Standard and a 1980 Custom, both great guitars (and I also have a 1956 Jr and a 1967 ES-345 for comparison).
Yes, I like Shaw's too, especially the clarity of the neck pickup! They may not be the most faithful recreation of...
Yes, this is the website of the "only authorized European dealer", but I think he's also the winder, despite stating they are "made in USA".
I must admit they seem to sound good. But the question is, if you make great sounding pickups, why do you have to pretend they are made by somebody else...
Hello from Belgium,
It's my first post though I'm a long time reader.
I recently noticed that a lot of people in France and possibly here in Belgium advertise their Les Paul stating that they have "hysteric bar pickups", supposedly "the best PAF replica on the market".
Well, I know that tone...
