Vintage Correct Parts is proud to offer, for your consideration,
A completely original and fantastic

e KILLER Vintage Gibson early 60's DOUBLE BLACK "Patent Number" PAF pickup

This is a Standard Spaced (not archtop spaced) "Patent Number" PAF - which is IDENTICAL to an early 60's PAF pickup. 

Nice mid-wind output reading at 7.23k !!  Great for neck or bridge application!  This PAF is in incredible example, great cosmetic condition.. this PAF has never been rewound, never been repaired and is exactly as it left the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo in 1962.
We played this pickup installed in the bridge position of a Les Paul Conversion and it was absolutely screaming. Incredible "Burst" tones out of this pickup!  

This is THEE ideal pickup for the restoration of your Burst, or the finishing touch on your 52/59 Conversion, or go the extra mile on your Makeover or Gibson Historic and deal with some REAL DEAL 1959 PAF TONE!
