Our version of the classic PAF-type pickup. Wound with the right balance of highs, mids and bass response using period correct materials, including wire type, magnet, and spacing.

The neck is wound to just under 8k to provide the quintessential 50s tone. The Alnico II magnet ensures the right response and lasting vintage sustain for your instrument.

We use period correct plain enamel wire, just like Gibson used during this period and do not compromise on any detail to achieve 50s period-correct construction, quality, and tone.

Available in neck or bridge position.
Please Note: Covered pickups are extra and optional.

This is perhaps the fourth one I ordered of the 59 special bridge. Absolutely love it.

Greco gold top

I put these pickups in a Greco Gold Top and the guitar came alive! The pickups were shot and I bought the guitar on a whim as I have Gibson custom shop Les Paul's and have a Gibson with the P-90's but didn't want to spend another $5,000 on a '57. So, I bought the Greco and it needed to be perked up which it has as I also put in the drop in wiring harness which made it easy peasy. I have more stuff on order and can't wait to get my grubby mitts on them and put them in other guitars. Thanks, Planet!

Quality and sound

Great tone from a pair of 57 PAFs, used in my custom HSH Strat . Would buy again
