I probably have the ugliest UV on this board. :D

I just threw a grey PAF in the neck slot of my beater PWH:



It now has a grey PAF7 from a K7 in the neck, a custom-wound black singlecoil by Frank Falbo in the middle, and the stock white Blaze in the bridge, along with a chrome OFR to replace the LoPro that was literally falling to peices.

Hideous, yes, but she just screams, and the PAF works way better for me than the neck Blaze does - it was too dark and smooth for me, while I tend to like a brighter, snappier neck pickup. This does that in spades, though at some point I should probably try to find one in white.

Anyway, just wanted to share - she's kind of a mutt these days, but she sounds awesome and plays like a dream.

It has a charm of it's own, it's yours and you like it, so, nicely done!

No, I've seen uglier! Yours has a distinctive class to it.

Screw bobbin toppers, I kinda dig the fact it clashes.

Thanks guys!

It's like the polar opposite to my PGM

Screw matching stuff, go forth and rock!

I've got a zebra tone zone and a green PAF Pro in my RFR RG550, looks awesome as far as I'm concerned.

Nice! White Universe's gives me instant GAS, even the ones with not-so-good-looking-pup-combos.
I wish I could travel 6 years back in time and convince myself to keep the 7PWH I once had.

Slacker - you can totally see the "Roadster" insignia on the footswitch in the front of the pic.

Yeah, I love this guitar, and I don't particular care that the pickups are completely mismatched. It's been absolutely abused over its life - you can't tell from the pics so much, but the finish is just cracked and checked and chipped over pretty much every square inch. I'm guessing a former owner used to gig with it wearing a spiked bracelet...? There's some weird dimples over the neck pickup that are tough to explain otherwise. Anyway, it's got all the charisma of an old, beat-up Strat, and I love it for that.

BTW, if a mod would care to fix the typo in the title, I'd be much obliged.
