    FS: Wizz PAF clone A4 set

    These pickups are as close as I’ve found to authentic PAFs. These are a standard set with A4 magnets and the neck pickup magnet flipped for out of phase Peter Green type tones. They were gently used for a brief time and function perfectly. Original lead lengths. Covers are nickel and were...

    Is this a real PAF?

    I picked up a player grade SG, produced most likely in 1973 (although the serial number indicates 1970-72, the block inlays were introduced in 1973). I assume it’s a Special, because it has a mini humbuckers in the neck, and a full sized humbucker in the bridge. The bridge pickup cavity was...

    So i took it to an 'expert' today who took the pickups out, i knew they had the sticker from a small dental mirror i used, but wanted to know if they were the real deal. He told me he thought they were just good fakes, his main complain being the "A's" from the sticker, too much black in the...
