    Duncan Amos vs Wizz vs. Throbak vs. ??? Best PAF?

    Tom has been retired for awhile now. Hence the rather large jump in these pickups prices in the used market.

    Does Gibson build guitars with Brazilian Rosewood boards anymore?

    Buddy and I went to Daves in LaCrosse two years ago as they had a big stash of Braz board Les Pauls. We were both completely unimpressed. Not only where they not very dark, they just didnt seem like good quality. Plus I think it was a 2k upcharge just to add a braz board. Kind of...

    NGD Custom Shop ‘64 ES-335 Cherry

    Very nice. Same color as my 63 reissue (memphis). I love that darker cherry. To me...much more vintage looking. If your Wizz dont work out i found throbak KZ-115's to be the best pickups I've tried in these guitars. Neck is VERY clear. Clearest of all pickups I've tried.

    How do the new True Historic parts and plastics compare to reproductions from other companies?

    Are you talking about "color" or more like "dimensions"? I personally think color is all over the map when you look at real bursts or vintage guitars. The wizz "bone" color is accurate for some vintage guitars and not others. I know i've seen pictures of many bursts that have bone colored...

    Your favorite Throbak PAF and why?

    I've got a set of 101 + and recently picked up a set of the KZ -115's with Long A2's. I have run the 101's in my atlanta built LP replica and in my 63 reissue 335. I've only had the KZ's in my 335. To me, the KZ's are just the schnizzle. Love them. The neck is so clear on the 335 it...

    ThroBak KZ-115 PAF's on The Doug and Pat Show

    Necro thread bump. I picked up a set of the KZ's (long A2's) and put them in my 63 reissue 335. I've had many many different pickups in that guitar and these are THE BEST that I've tried. I had a set of my Throbak 101 + in there just before putting these in but these are really a better for...

    Duncan Amos vs Wizz vs. Throbak vs. ??? Best PAF?

    Whats your budget? Start from there. Less than $200? Probabaly some sort of Duncan. $350ish? I really like Sheptones in that category. Used Fralins or Lollars. (Have not had Wolftones but hear really good things. $500ish? used Throbaks or Wizz. $600 ish New Throbaks...

    A unique opportunity found me the other day (Doyle Coil Tru-Clones PAF)

    Will be curious to hear how they sound in your guitar. What you were hearing in that 57 is a combination of the pickups, and old wood, etc. It;s not all just the pickups. So keep that in mind. You'd be surprised how much just changing pots to something closer to 550k will change the tone...

    Current Historic Reissues vs Older Historic Reissues

    I've been on the replica band wagon for awhile now. But prior to that I had purchased a bunch of historic reissues. I would say that there is a cutoff between pre-2013 and post 2013. 2013 there were a bunch of changes made that positively impacted the guitar. What it did, IMHO, is give the...
