After many years of success with the PAF Heaven 57 and Heaven 67, Lundgren pickups has introduced its new Heaven 77 humbucker, an eruptive, rebuilt P.A.F with custom unique features for that famous "brown" sound. The Swedish company—which was founded in 1990—put two years of research and development into this new model of an old, sought-after recipe.
According to owner (and builder) Johan Lundgren, the Heaven 77 gives you a bright, open, focused "stringy" sound with a beefed-up PAF tone. He adds that the pickup is edgy and hotter and opens up a new dimension; the tone is clear, articulate and full of attack.
It's available in open black, Zebra or rusty nickel pole screws, in bridge or neck varieties or as a full calibrated set.
