♛ Sovereign PAF Set Alnico II

Ricardo Espinha takes the Sovereign PAF set through their paces with a bit of top blues playing.


JJ's Guitar Pickups has an offering for guitarists seeking true P.A.F. tone - The Sovereign P.A.F. Guitar Pickup.

The ♛Sovereign P.A.F. Guitar Pickup is all about gorgeous overtones, even order harmonics, that upper bass smoothness on vibrato that original examples have. Beautifully warm, jazzy sound when clean. A great gainy sound when pushed, all whilst retaining transparency and dynamics.
