OX4 A4 Low Wind PAF style Humbucker set, Aged Nickel Covers
The OX4 A4 Low Wind PAF style humbucker set with aged nickel covers is carefully hand made, one at the time by Mark Stow of OX4 using only the best of the best, vintage correct materials in order to make a pickup that looks and sounds like the best examples of the original late 1950's Gibson PAF pickups.
Best vintage sounding PAF style humbucker pickup
They are simply hands down the best vintage sounding PAF style pickup we have ever tried or heard, and we've tried almost all of them.
In fact we have put the OX4 A4 Low Wind PAF style set up against original PAF pickups and they held their own beautifully. The OX4 pickups have the same open sounding, vocal growl and tonal characteristics, but just as important the same touch dynamics as the originals.
We use these pickups in our own R9 Les Pauls and our CS '59 ES-335s, and the pickups transformed these already very nice sounding guitars and took them to a level we didn't think was possible - they became much more open sounding, got a distinctly better, warmer and more vintage sounding tone, with much improved touch dynamics.
Almost like the guitars got a new soul or heart ! - we've come to refer to this as a #ToneTransplant
