Original Gibson Humbucker

The first humbucker was the PAF by Seth Lover (the PAF gets its name from the "patent applied for" sticker which was stuck on its underside), and this was subsequently found on the legendary Gibson guitars, including Les Paul, SG, ES series, but also in the exotics like Flying V or Explorer. For many guitarists it is still the best: not a screamer - it is much too classy for that - ​​but it can sing like no other pickup. Nowadays even the tough guys prefer to use the PAF in the neck position, because it harmonises so well with a slightly more violent-sounding pickup on the bridge.

Great pickup

Santiago383, 15.09.2016
I am very happy with this purchase, it is a great pick up with a fantastic vintage sound.
A couple of years ago I put a 57 on the bridge position of a cheap LTD LP style body as I waned to have that kind of sound available in my studio and i've been very happy so far with it but recently I decided to replace also the neck pup, to my surprise it sounds even better than the one on the bridge.

Highly recommended!

The only negative comment i have about it is the fact that being a vintage pup it only comes with one wire + earth so is not possible to install a pull/pull knob to switch it into a single coil pup but hey, it is a Gibson 57 vintage after all...!
