The tone of the pickups, is to say P.A.F, the same Dynamics and Timbre as Original P.A.F's.  The neck is warm, fat, punchy, with great balance and has the clarity and lower mid drive that P.A.F's are known for.   The bridge has a little more drive, the mids have a slight bit more bite to them, while not effecting the clarity or the treble frequencies.  

The Artists we have, have this to say about the P.A.F's. They have the same Timbre as the originals and they have a real sweet (slight) compression in the mids and highs.  

Output:  Neck 7.60k, Bridge 8.30k.
  • The Average Output is shown, we wind the pickups to a set number of Traversed turns, Asymmetric Coils, just like the Leesona 102 Winder.
