14 DAGAR FULL RETURRÄTT byt eller pengarna tillbaka
After many years of only offering our Rocketfire P.A.F.s and other humbuckers in custom guitars or as a favor to repeat customers, they're now available to all!
Rocketfire P.A.F.s' are Open, Alive and Resonant by design. You'll find them so inspiring and captivating that you can't put the guitar down! Our P.A.F. modeled pickups are not wax potted and are wound in a unique way which captures the wood and unplugged sound of the guitar. They have the same subtle compression that makes our Strat pickups sound the way they do!
It's an almost tube rectifier compression that comes back at you after you hit a chord. This is super important because it gives the highs crystal clear definition without any harshness. Hear that bell like single coil type clarity with the grind and power of a humbucker and you've heard our '1959 PAF'!
- AlNiCo Magnets
- P.E. Wire
- Period Correct Braided Cable
ABOUT THE BUILDER
As a guitar builder, I've had the unique opportunity to try ALL kinds of pickups. I've used most of what's on the shelf as well as original vintage pickups that fetch $3000+ a set! Some of the old pickups had something hard to describe, but missing from modern pickups. They were lively, raw; gutsy, with soul that just sounded 'vintage'. I set out to break the rules on what 'couldn't be done', I began the quest to create something I was finally happy with. A huge part of the difference had to do with winding techniques and patterns. An equally large factor was the quality of the components (flatwork/bobbin construction, mag wire, and the magnets themselves). I took several samples of early Pre-CBS wire (From real deal vintage Fender pickups) and spent a LOT of time listening to and testing AlNiCo Magnets carefully sorting through suppliers until I found the best and most orignal and ALIVE sounding magnets. Finding these magnets was HUGE and what I consider a breakthrough in tone. The right parts, the right techniques are what make my guitars special... or as I like to call it... the Secret Recipe for my Guitars!
