Vaughn's Custom Holy Grail PAF Set
List: $329 Direct Price: $269
My PERSONAL Holy-grail humbucker set! Ever so slightly over-wound and employing AlNiCo V magnets, this set remains true to the vintage PAF tone, but has just a touch more hair and splits into single coil in a most extraordinary manner! Proprietary unbalanced coil winds lead to true PAF Nirvana … and exceptional single-coil abilities as well. Available uncovered or covered, the set is wound and calibrated specifically to excel in the bridge & neck positions respectively. 4-wire with separate ground for unlimited possibilities: Humbucker, Single Coil, parallel coils, series coils, it's all there ... and all sounds impeccable.
This is the set for you if you need both great PAF humbucker tone and remarkable single-coil tone.
