The PAF is arguably the leading pickup from Monty’s – a faithful reconstruction of the PAF’s used in ’58-’60 Les Paul Standards. Part of their Originals range, they’ve successfully delivered a brilliant tone. This variation features a Bare Nickel finish.
Playing lightly will produce a wonderfully clear tone, but they can also sound massive when you decide to push them further.
The PAF is one of the best-selling pickups from Monty’s. They make such a nice sound that you’ll keep coming back to your guitar again and again.
This results in unparalleled dynamism and sensitivity, while two slightly offset coils add impressively large top-end response.
Here’s what Monty’s Guitars say about the Originals
Our sonic recreations of real vintage pickups, the Originals series is the bread and butter of Monty’s pickup universe. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been fortunate enough to see, repair and play countless examples of basically every vintage pickup imaginable. While not every old pickup is particularly good (in fact, we’ve seen some absolute shockers in our time), the best of them are simply divine. We’ve worked out what it is that makes these tonal titans tick and distilled their essence into each and every one of our originals series pickups. If you’re after pure vintage tone, these are the pickups for you.
