SET OF 2 HAND WOUND 59 PARTS SCREAMBUCKER PAF PICKUPS, AlNiCo 2
By the early 1950's Gibson was being directly challenged by Fender as the major producer of quality solid body electric guitars. To counter the Fender charge on the market, Gibson decided to develop a high quality, low noise pickup with which to equip their newly introduced Les Paul model guitar. Seth Lover was the engineer assigned with the task of developing this new product. In order to solve the inherent noise problems of the P90 and single coil pickups Lover decided upon connecting two side by side single coil pickups in series but with opposite magnetic polarities and opposite current travel in either coil. The product he developed changed the sound of electric guitar forever!

Here are the details that gave the classic vintage 50's PAF's their legendary tone and are duplicated in the 59 PARTS SCREAMBUCKER PAF
