OX4 Beano PAF style Humbucker set, Double Black
This set of handmade OX4 PAF style pickups are made specifically to give you the legendary and much sought after sound of Clapton's PAF loaded Les Paul on the seminal and legendary John Mayall album "Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton". The album is perhaps better known as the Beano album, as Clapton is seen reading a Beano comic book on the cover.
It was Clapton's soul-wrenching playing and sound around the time of and on the Beano album that started the "Clapton is God" grafitti trend in London.
Clapton's work on the Beano album also got him credited by piers such as Jimmy Page as the guitarist who invented the Les Paul into a cranked Marshall, and thus the modern rock sound.
If you want the legendary Beano sound, then look no further.
The pickups feature A3 magnets, a special Beano wind and open coils / no cover.
Clapton's Beano LP had an open coil double white neck pickup and an open coil double black bridge pickup - we prefer the look of double black for both neck and bridge and custom ordered our sets like that.
