Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For our PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ 36th Anniversary Bridge we wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover (designer of the originalÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_Patent Applied ForÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_humbucker) and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. These pickups are not merely clones. We re-engineered the PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ using our patented technology and Larry DiMarzioÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs own 1959 cherry sunburst GibsonÔøΩÔøΩ_ Les PaulÔøΩÔøΩ_ as the reference. LarryÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs GibsonÔøΩÔøΩ_ Les PaulÔøΩÔøΩ_ has a uniquely amazing sound and itÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs not only due to the pickups ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ itÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field, the sound is well defined ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ almost like a single-coil. We duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer, as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. We use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire, achieving the exact frequency response we want. Then itÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs dipped in our custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The cover is made from nickel-silver and our new plating makes it more magnetically transparent than the originals. The PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ 36th Anniversary Neck is smooth but not muddy. It performs equally well in the neck or bridge, just as the best humbuckers from the 50s did. The PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ 36th Anniversary Bridge is hotter than theÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_Neck. It is not only for set neck 24ÔøΩÔøΩ__ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩ scale guitars, but itÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons. WeÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩll build the PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ 36th Anniversary any way you want it. Choose the bobbin style ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ vintage glossy or modern matte, the type of base ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ traditional, long-legged or standard, short-legged, and the type of cable ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ vintage single-conductor or 4-conductor. The PAFÔøΩÔøΩ_ 36th Anniversary Bridge is available uncovered, and we also offer three types of covers ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩÔøΩ_ standard polished and plated, buffed with no plating, and our vintage worn cover that looks so authentic and broken in that youÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩll swear itÔøΩÔøΩ_ÔøΩs been hanging around since 1959.
