This video compares the 8.2K HD PG (Peter Green spec) to a 61 PAF of nearly the same number of winds. This is a hotter, throaty sounding neck and can be use out of phase or in phase, and is a great neck pickup on its own.

You will hear some very minor differences, the vintage PAF has some nice qualities, and the HD PAF also has its nice qualities and they are nearly identical. If you close your eyes and listen to the video you'll have a hard time figuring out which is which. The point of these videos is to give you a brutally honest look at an actual vintage PAF set in my own guitars and rig, with my hands at the wheel, and to show that my nine years of dedicated, insanely obsessed and detailed work on this subject gives you a product that is thousands of dollars cheaper than the real thing ;-) And gives you the actual feel and sound of what it would be like if you had $5,000 worth of vintage PAF's in your guitar.

There is no crappy hand winding used here, no critical parts made offshore of the wrong materials and wrong design parameters. My PAF repro's are as exact copies as I can make using modern materials. Vintage materials just can't be 100% matched, but its never stopped me from pursuing this dream and reaching my own personal goals.
