My 2007 gibson sg special may have Paf pickups and i’m wondering if any of you here can confirm this
Pictures would be a BIG help.
I'm getting into my trance now. No, you have ZEBRA PICKUPS. Possibly a clone from MojoTone or some other after market, but how the devil would I know without a close up and multi-view picture of the pickups in question? I can't. Here's what the back of a paf might look like:
I think he's got a P94.
the guitar on my profile picture is not mine it’s someone’s know’s guitar. I’ll send some pictures of the pickups
For decades, Gibson has put "Patent Applied For" decals on some modern, current production pickups like '57 Classics, Burstbuckers, other "replica" pickups that are intended to be similar to original PAF's from the '50s and early '60s.
It's highly, highly unlikely that a previous owner put an actual set of multi-thousand dollar vintage PAF's in your guitar and left them in when he sold it.
Completely impossible that it came from the factory with actual vintage PAF's.
In 2007 many Gibson pickups had PAF decals. That's what you've got.
neck and bridge
Burstbucker Pros from this century, not vintage PAF's.
Yeah, they did go up a bit, didn't they?
