Here are some audio-video tests of five new PAF pickup clones for you to compare and contrast.
A 2013 Gibson Custom Shop 1959 Les Paul Reissue was used for all testing. The LP was played through Dr. Z Remedy and Komet Aero 33 heads that were plugged into a selection of cabinets loaded with Celestion and Scumback speakers.
