Equivalent to F1, F2 & C3

I've been having some difficulty locating these pups and was wondering if there's anything that's comparable to these pups that are current production models. Thanks!

Looks like an F1 is like a PAF pro?

Re: Equivalent to F1, F2 & C3

I just saw your wanted ad in the classifieds for these. I have an F1, fairly scratched up. I've never hooked it up (not sure if it works or not).

PM me if interested and I can send pics and test the resistance.

Re: Equivalent to F1, F2 & C3

For what it's worth, I have an F2 in one of my RGs, and it doesn't really sound like a Tone Zone. It doesn't have the harmonics, and it's much more mid-honk-y sounding, kind of like what I imagine the tone of the Super 3 sounds like.

well, the f2 sounds like the TZ, but without the hugeness. it does lack alot of the harmonics and output. in no way does it resemble the super3. the super3 is over the top, but in a more focused way. tons of output without being x2n obnoxious and big, but not like the fatness of the tone zone. has a great lead tone and rhythm tone. very modern.
