If you haven't heard of Peter Green or his famous 'Reverse-Polarity' sound, definitely check him out! His soulful guitar sound has inspired countless players and hopefully many more to come. The thing about his sound is - it was made entirely by mistake. Somewhere in the factory at Gibson, some employee mistakenly labeled a magnet with the wrong 'polarity', giving that set a slightly thinner, 'Out-of-Phase' sound when the guitar is switched to the 'middle position'. As they say, "The rest is history'.
If you have a guitar that has a nice thick tone naturally, then this set will give you a very wide array of options, from clear, creamy and crisp, to meaty and round. All boasting an impressive character that is missing from standard 'machine-wound' pickups.
These pickups are 'handwound', have a relatively low output (7.2k-Neck, 8.5k-Bridge), and are made with the highest quality Nickel Silver baseplates and Plain Enamel wire. This model, as with the original PAF's, are not wax potted.
