- Amazing with other pickups
Exceptional tone and versatility
The PAF Pro was created when chops-intensive playing was first starting to happen and high-gain amps and rack systems were getting popular. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and "cut" with an open-sounding "PAF" vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro slice through heavy processing, (where darker-sounding pickups often get lost in the mud of the effects chain). Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the mid-range that provides the pickup a subtle "aw" vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked, so high notes stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it's an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.
Works well in any position
The PAF Pro is a dependable choice right across the board - neck and bridge positions, solid-body, semi-hollow and hollow body guitars are equally effective uses.
Awesome with other pickups
This is a killer building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Try it in the neck position with a hotter bridge pickup for a awesome two-humbucker match. As a bridge pickup, it's really effective with single-coils, because it won't drown them out with too much power, and it's bright enough to blend in, tone-wise.
