Are you ready to cut through in the mix? The Lindy Fralin-designed Pure PAF is Fralin's best-selling humbucker. Based on the specifications of the original '50s Gibson PAF pickups, this model features a clean, articulate tone that's incredibly versatile. The Pure PAF is a low-output humbucker, which is more dynamic and expressive than higher output pickups. It's more articulate and cleaner than Fralin's Modern PAF, but beefier than their P-92. Lindy's passion for the sound of vintage '50s humbuckers led him down the road to design and create the Pure PAF, and it's easy to see why: This pickup sounds incredible.

Just how does it sound? Clean and articulate! The Pure PAF stays clean and features a late break-up and a smooth grind. This pickup is perfect if you're trying to restore life to your guitar. Don't let the term "vintage" fool you, you'll find that it's loud and versatile enough to hang with modern-voiced pickups; it just features more clarity than modern humbuckers. Built with a USA-made alnico 2 magnet and 42-gauge Plain Enamel wire, the Pure PAF pickup is a gateway to instant vintage tone. When playing without distortion, you'll find that this pickup sings what you put into it - it's dynamic and warm. Highs are accentuated with a medium attack.

With distortion, you'll find that the grind is nice and smooth. Fralin's manufacturing process allows them to achieve unparalleled quality control. When Lindy designed this pickup, he wanted it to be as close to the originals as possible. Pure PAFs consist of USA-made baseplates, magnets, wire, and butyrate bobbins. Fralin winds each pickup by hand, one at a time, using their proprietary Sectioning technique. Doing this gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone, reminiscent of the early Gibson humbuckers. Finally, they assemble each pickup one at a time, by hand, which allows them to achieve unbeatable attention to detail. After assembly, they wax-pot the pickup to prevent microphonics and preserve it for years to come.
