Build the ol' way...handwound

“AREA59” PAF Series....Maybe the best and most accurate PAF Replica made from Vintage Correct Parts!....built to breath the famous "Burst Tone" in to your modern Guitar. The key to it all....
- Built from the best Vintage correct PAF Parts unsing Customcast magnets which in our opinion up to 70% influence the sound...
- Wound the old fashioned way, hand made by real people 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.

New or 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.
Nice Special Square Windows at the correct position at both sides! 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 have access to a selection of org. Les Paul, SGs, ES so we know how those old instruments can sounds and proud to say our Area59' PAFs are really really close!

Important Infos about our PAFs...
After nearly 1,5 years of research and testing all pickups we offer today we never changed the specs of our "Final Version" we offer today! This means we using the same selected parts, wire, bobbins, slugs and polescrews and for sure the same magnets (which IMO is the most important part of the sound) for all pickups you can buy from us. For us its important, since our pickups have real vintage attitude, we have all pickups as original vintage ones ava. so we know how good old PAFs and P90s sounds and we are proud to say our pickups are do not need to shy away from the comparison.

Some important infos customers need to know about the DC resistance (kΩ) often annouced with pickups! Here is a helpfull link from Jason Lollar which helps to understand. btw. DC resistance can change +/- 5%!
