Gibson Original PAF 1962/63 Black

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Genuine Gibson black-label PAF, estimate manufacturing date in the ‘62 - ’63 range, harvested from a ’63 SG/LP Standard, serial #113113 (Kalamazoo plant).

The instrument is currently owned by seller and was acquired in Johannesburg in 1986. The guitar is in poor condition and is unlikely to be restored.

The pickup is uncovered and the coils taped and wax-potted, serving to both protect the irreplaceable original windings and reduce microphonics. The DC resistance weighs in at a robust 7.99K Ohms and, since this unit was in neck position from the time of manufacture, the braided lead wire is full-length and original.

The pickup is entirely free of modification, outside of cover removal and protective taping and potting.

$1850.00 is the asking price, all REASONABLE offers will be considered.
