“AREA59” PAF Series....

The key to it all....

that have pride in what they do.
- Something special that isn't machine cloned and can't be created by a
clever marketing campaign.
That humanity you get from one person,
winding one pickup at a time, is what we think "Mojo" is.
And if we're honest, most of the vintage pickups were good, some of them were awful. But a few, a fated few were great, truly outstanding, because they had that certain something
that you can't quite put your finger on, that extra 0.01% thatmakes the hair on your neck look to the stars.
Slightly aged and built according to original spec other than being hand wound rather than machine, built and voiced as faithful reproductions of the best sounding late '59 PAF’s with “Unmistakable vintage character”
These are made with correct parts including the Plain enamel wire, custommade alnico magnets and the all black leads are correctly configured according to original PAFs we own.
All pickups comes with custombuild long Alnico V magnets for the real Vintage tone. We use 2 different kinds of A5 Magnets for Bridge and Neck which makes a huge difference in tone.

Vintage Correct 2-Strand Braided Shieldwire, Vintage Correct PAF Base, Brass Bobbin Screws Vintage style PAF sticker and last but not least, Vintage correct "Cheesehead Polescrews! Bobbins are Custommade for Crazyparts and matching the org. ol Gibson PAFs
...we meet Bernie first time 4/5 October 2014 at the Copenhagen Guitar Show. Bernie walked in and felt in love with my DJ 59' Burst...he told me that he never saw a better retuning with this stunning look of an old 59' Burst. He played "Barfly" and was amazed about the sound of the Pickups, just in this second I became the idea of a Signature PAF for Bernie and the name was there also in my mind...."THE BEAST BUCKER" would be the coolest name for his PAF since his famous 59' Burst called "THE BEAST".
Exact 1 year later, after lot of reseach and testing, checking details of Bernies org. PAFs and finding the rigth components, we are proud to introduce "THE BEAST BUCKER". Bernies Signature Pickup is close to the old Burst PAFs that breathe the Famous "Burst Tone" into your modern build Guitar.
"THE BEAST BUCKER" Vintage Version is build only from Vintage correct Parts, incl. correct alloy slugs and custommade "Cheesehead" Polescrews all those Parts are "Made in USA" , the magnet of this PAF is custommade (we analyzied an old PAF Magnet and find out the components they are made from) All Parts and Sets will be prepared here at Crazyparts when we get it from the USA first, the ageing process is very complex, ageing Bases, Bobbins, Screws etc. , then the parts prepared for the next step of the production and sending to Marc Ransley for winding. After the winding process and mounting they send back to us for final ageing, adding stickers, final check and packing for final sale.
All Pickups are wind the old fashioned way by real people that had pride in what they were doing. This is one of the secrets and something special that you don't get cloned by a machine, that humanity you get from one person, winding one pickup at a time, is what we think "MOJO" is.
