59 set sounded amazing, very good work!!
Damn, those sounded great! Good job Dave!
"Finally got the Holy Grails's in my guitar last night. Wow! Fantastic. Very good. They are very very similar to my real P.A.F.s. Ghost notes etc. Well done sir. The have that "airy/hollow" feel I have been looking for."
Well yeah they are something else!!
They screamed at me right from the first chord!
They are so many things at the same time.
Biting but subtle, hollow but full, low output but with tons of sustain, bright but sweet. Absolutely incredible clarity to the individual notes of the chords. I can't say enough about them.
The 58 neck is hands down the BEST neck pickup I have ever tried. After I spend enough time with them, I might say the same thing about the bridge model as well.
What these guys said. The level of detail and articulation coming from the 58 set I put my R0 is amazing! Great mid position tones. I am reminded of when I started playing guitar all of those years ago and I could get lost in a chord.Sets moving out, getting lots of great feedback! Here's a few bits:
As of this pint....
Thanks! There really is something to the old wire, definitely one of the key ingredients in the PAF formula.
The copper itself was impure and inconsistent by modern standards which makes for a less than perfect coil. I don't mean imperfect as in flawed, but much less predictable. Out of the same spool I had bobbins ranging from ~mid 3k to mid 4k with everything else being consistent. My modern wire equivalent Plain Enamel is much more regulated and predictable and a single bobbin will fluctuate maybe 0.2 - 0.4 with all else being equal.
