|BG Pups P.U.F. Humbucker Set
The P.U.F. is modeled off the classic PAF tone, but features all the tonal benefits of a handwound pickup. The most vintage-sounding set available from BG Pups, the neck is warm with nice bloom, and offers excellent clean and creamy lead tones. The bridge has a classic crunch with lots of definition and cuts nicely through a mix. Both pickups are very pick-sensitive and have a versatile dynamic range. This set is wired with single conductor vintage braided wire, uses an A4 magnet and is unpotted (it can be potted on request). Chrome cover is optional.

The Twelve is handwired using the best components, featuring a solid pine cabinet, U.S.- made transformers and Sprague and Mojo capacitors. The amp also comes with a Mojo BV-25M speaker.
