"...if you want to get as close as possible to vintage Gibson humbucker tone, the ’59 PAF Clones are a great way to go." -Guitar Player Magazine, May 2014


The 59' "Patent Applied For" Clones are for the tone purist. Authentic to every detail using all American made parts. 1959 spec butyrate bobbins, 1959 spec long leg frame, custom vintage spec plain enamel wire, custom alnico 4 cast magnets, maple spacer, vintage spec screws, and vintage spec slugs. 


These are lower output than our standard version, making them much more articulate and crisp. Ideal for dark sounding guitars or just a neck pickup that needs a more single coil like clarity. The upper frequency range has exceptional bloom and lots of airy tone with the un-potted coils. We meticulously wound each coil with our own pattern and offset to represent what we believe to be the best vintage P.A.F. examples out there.

Finally, a clear, rich neck pickup with no mud!

by Phil S -

My first great guitar was a 1961 SG Les Paul Custom with three PAFs. In recent years I have tried everything, every great brand and winder, trying to find a neck humbucker that had the clarity and sweetness of the PAF in the neck position of that first great guitar. Nothing worked until I tried the Mojotone Low Output. Finally, a humbucker that doesn't muffle the response of the wound strings. This is THE pickup for clean playing in the neck position, more beautiful sounding and clearer than famous boutique winds costing four times as much.

Clarity and grit built into one.

by Bryan -

I put these into my 2007 Les Paul classic and it totally changed the way I think PAFs should sounds like. There's some nice chimey action in the middle, grit in the bridge, and that dreamy warmth in the neck. For the money, these are the best bang for your buck to get that classic PAF sound from your head and in your guitar!
