The holy-grail humbucker.

This is, beyond question the tone that launched the sound of Rock-n-Roll electric guitar as we know it … and oh so much more!
While original PAF specs and tone varied significantly, Vaugnh has chosen the best of the best, for impeccable PAF tone. Warm & sweet, yet clear and defined, that's the 1957 Historic PAF.
These pickups are for you if you get your dirt from your pedals and/or amp and want a humbucker tone that is rich in complex harmonics and cleans up in a downright stunning manner.
These are tremendously versatile; on one extreme, when played clean through a non-master volume Fender you get the tone Les Paul himself originally envisioned and folks like Chet Adkins milked for all it was worth. Turn up the volume on a tweed-era Fender and you get Freddie King tone. Play it with a slide ala Duane Allman. A little more gain? How about Tom Scholz, Gary Moore, man … the list goes on forever, Joe Bonamassa, Keith Urban, The Edge, even all the way to the famous high=gain Marshall JCM800 tones of Slash and the super-shredding of Avenged Sevenfold’s Synyster Gates. Yea … tremendously versatile indeed.
