The PAF Pro humbucker was created when chops-intensive playing was first starting to happen and high-gain amps and rack systems were getting popular. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and cut with an open sounding PAF vibe. The transparency of it's sound lets the PAF Pro slice through heavy processing, where darker sounding pickups get lost in the mud. of chain effects. Low notes have both snap and chunk and there is a spike in the mid range that gives the pickup a subtle aw vowel sound, like the wah wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked, so high notes stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar and it's an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.
