The Electric Spanish PAF
Single Pickup or Set of 2 Pickups
As evidenced by its presence in our workshop semi-acoustic, the ‘Electric Spanish PAF’ is designed with the semi and hollow body player in mind. With a smidgen less growl than our ’58s and increased clarity these pickups are designed to specialise at Jazz and Rhythm ‘n’ Blues whilst equally being at home with Beatles style strumming. There’s some nice bite and gristle in the bridge if needed but with the volume knobs rolled off a little combined with the slight underwind and softer attack of the Alnico II Magnet in the Neck position, the ideal amount of warmth and clarity is retained to allow the acoustic character of your guitar to shine through and be complimented.
- Alnico IV Bar Magnet (Bridge), Alnico II (Neck).
- Handwound with 42 AWG Plain Enamel Wire.
- Vintage Spec Output: 7.5k (N), 7.8k (B).
- Vintage Braided Wire.
- Choice of pickup covers – Nickel (Gloss), Gold, Chrome, Raw Nickel or Uncovered (see ‘Pickup Cover Choice’ menu below).
- Unpotted to retain full expression and dynamics (wax potting available on request).
- Magnet degaussing to reproduce light ageing available on request.

By default all of our pickups are shipped with Royal Mail who we find to be excellent both within the UK and Internationally. Their rates enable us to offer prices that are very reasonable for our customers and the timeframe is great for the vast majority of countries. We find that, once despatched, Royal Mail tend to take 1 working day within the UK, 2/3 working days within the EU, 4/5 working days to North America and Worldwide. These are guidelines and of course some countries differ and the level of ‘officiousness’ in customs departments differs massively worldwide. If ordering from a country which is notorious for taking a while to process imported goods (we can think of a few!) please build this into your expectation on the timeframe after despatch.
How long will it take to make?
As a small pickup maker handmaking within an extremely busy workshop we expect to complete all pickups sets within 16-20 working days (Relic’ed orders 5 days longer). We sometimes work quicker than those timeframes and we’ll always endeavour to finish your pickups as quick as we are able to of course. We can sometimes process a rush order if you have an upcoming, important concert or perhaps if you are buying for a relative’s birthday etc - feel free to message and we’ll always see what we can do.
