I would suggest that regardless of tiny little details that we all look for in the construction of a PAF the key things here are that the baseplate will never oxidise under the decal. Also, the hookup Gibson used on PAFs had two strands per plait.
I'm pleased to say it's not one of mine.
Good day to all.
Some of you will be surprised to see me here again after all this time. Well, I have finally gotten round to getting a computer fixed so I'll take this opportunity to say hello and hopefully put a few worries to rest.
Firstly, I'd like to say that no one will ever not get...
Please let me put your minds at rest.
As most of you know, I have worked in a Shed for years, hence the name. That was OK but every few years I've had to get a bigger Shed as I invest in better equipment etc.
At the end of last year my Mrs decided the time was right to move house...
Happy holidays to all and thanks to all for your patience, custom and friendship throughout the year.
I'm still in the old Shed until I at least have a door fitted on the new one. The snow's blowing in there which is a bit of a nuisance.

All said and done, it can be achieved.
Accepting that a set of pickups for you went missing in Germany, I did make you another set which you wanted sent to Taiwan where you were working for the summer. I sent them to the address supplied.
These arrived back on my doorstep this morning:
Obviously something went wrong here as...
And yet I've sent you two sets of pickups with a third now to come. This time, as I have told you today in an email, I will be sending the next set by International Signed For airmail so that I know you've got them. Three sets of pickups costs me a great deal of money you know and to be frank, a...
Hand wound and hand assembled with ageing is extremely time consuming. Then add the cost of superior component parts.
Look at it like when you take your car to the garage for work. Usually, the biggest part of the bill is labour charges.
As for big name users; sometimes us pickup makers...
Bare Knuckle Pickups will not ever allow poor quality pickups out the door. Of course they are not a one-man business but all staff are trained and expected to work to strict standards. Parts quality is superb and mostly custom made in the UK at great expense.
