ThroBak SLE-101 Plus MXV Ltd PAF set with aged Nickel covers
We are fortunate to have acquired several sets of amazing PAF repro pickups made with the original stash of wire (lot 50026 and 27) that ThroBak had access to, which is long gone now. Two of the most famous winding machines in the world, Leesona 102 and Slug 101, wound these fantastic pickups in 2011. Highly sought after for a vintage PAF tone, but with more mids. Nothing but the best stuff for Watchtower customers!
