"Nothing says Legend like the kings of the past and this is our homage to the sounds of vintage music"
The Progenitor PAF is Legendary Pickups homage to the Original P.A.F. humbucker. Whilst not a reproduction, the PAF is constructed with more vintage specs and options, perfect for those looking for tone similar to those from the past.
Plain enamel wire, vintage formula nickel pole screws, vintage alloy keeper bars, rough cast AlNiCo magnets, German nickel baseplates in 49.2mm spacing and old school butyrate bobbins assist in recreating the visual and functional design of this pickup. Top it off with vintage braided wire (optional) and you have a pickup that aims to capture the vibe of the one that started it all.

Please note, to give the vibe of the very originals, this pickup comes in one single design for both neck and bridge positions. Please rotate this if using it in the neck. This is not a vintage accurate reproduction and some modern liberties have been used to make this more adaptable to current guitar designs, wiring options and switches.
All pickups are made to order (unless specified). Please expect 25-30 days for your order to be completed.
