A replica of one of the most desirable humbuckers of all time.

Burgaw, NC (December 3, 2019) -- Following on the success of popular in-house pickups such as the Quiet Coils series, ’59 Clone Humbucker, Johnny Winter Firebird Pickup and more, Mojotone is excited to announce the release of the Premium Historic Limited ’59 P.A.F. Humbucker Set, a painstaking re-creation of the legendary late-’50s Gibson P.A.F. humbuckers, the most desirable pickups of all time.

The Mojotone Premium Historic Limited ’59 P.A.F. Humbucker Set is the result of years of extensive tone-first R&D and the analysis of several stellar original late-’50s P.A.F.s. By ditching the hype and following the sound, Mojotone has created the Premium Historic ’59 P.A.F. using all vintage-correct components, and coils that are hand-wound to the precise layering and mis-matching of vintage P.A.F. coils to re-create a dynamic, articulate, harmonically rich, yet inspiringly clear set of neck and bridge humbuckers—all at an impressive circa-1959 price.

The Mojotone Premium Historic Limited ’59 P.A.F. Humbucker Set is available in limited quantities and is sold exclusively on Reverb.com.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
