But they didn't come from Gibson that way. Guitar Trader took the stock pickups out and put in their own stash of PAF's.I do now recall reading that some of the early Guitar Trader reissues had pafs I think?
Like I said, the '70s were weird. Rick Derringer pulled the PAF's from his split headstock '58 Explorer and put in Dimarzios (and added a mini-toggle switch).That ad is just wild! $135 then is worth $645 today according to a random inflation calc. website.
oh man if only.
