paf pro

i have this paf pro, on the bottom it is stamped with f , does this mean that it is a neck pickup, i have been told that the paf pro isn't specifically made for just the bridge or neck but for both.





as you can see the wires are cut pretty short how can i repair them so the wires are full length.

Re: paf pro

That will typically mean it is F-spaced sir.

Damn you're going to have an enjoyable time rewiring that puppy

Re: paf pro

PAF PROs are generally very balanced pickups and yes, you can use them in the neck or the bridge. I have an F-spaced in the neck, and it isn't a problem. Of course, I'm tone deaf and as such don't notice. I therefore say that F-spaced is "cosmetic". Others will say it has a tone impact.

Most people are open to trying "bridge" pickups in the neck and vice versa. Its all about what you're looking for in terms of tone.

Re: paf pro

No no, the f-spaced-ness is just that. F-spaced does not mean it is a bridge pickup. You can put it in the neck if you so choose. You can put it in the bridge as well. Does not matter at all.

Re: paf pro

F space is Floyd space, anyway there's only one Paf pro, and you can use it in the neck or the bridge, I have 2 Paf pros in my RG and they are very balance.

Re: paf pro

I'm thinking of doing that also dual Paf pro. I have a F-spaced Paf Joe in the bridge of my RG2550 and its a great bridge pick up, I really like it, and I think the Paf is mostly used as a neck pickup, can't wait to hear what it sounds like in the neck.

Re: paf pro

If you are careful, you can remove the tape and rewire from the coils.
