(From the Lindy Fralin website)
The Lindy Fralin Modern P.A.F. humbucker is our best-selling humbucker we make. We took the specifications of the 50’s Gibson® P.A.F. pickups and put our own modern twist on it. The Modern P.A.F. humbucker is thicker, stronger, and warmer than our Pure P.A.F. This pickup will give you a modern, thicker tone that still sounds vintage and clean. The Modern P.A.F. humbucker has a higher output than the Pure P.A.F., with stronger magnets and more winds. It will break up earlier than the Pure P.A.F. Lindy’s idea with our Modern P.A.F. humbucker was to push the 50’s sound a step into the future by taking the Pure P.A.F. and giving it some steroids.
Thick, strong, yet clear. The Modern P.A.F. humbucker will break up a little earlier than more vintage-sounding humbuckers, and you’ll find that it’s loud, with a bold sound. Built with AlNicCo IV and 42-gauge plain enamel wire, the Modern P.A.F. humbucker is the perfect balance between modern and vintage tone. When playing clean, you’ll find that this pickup has a thicker, warmer tone. With distortion, you’ll find that the grind is dirtier than the Pure P.A.F., with light compression. All humbuckers give you pure-sounding plain strings and bright wound strings.
