Don't get me wrong. I love the sound of PAF pickups, when somebody else is playing them. But I've honestly never been able to get a sound I liked out of them. I recently played a 57' ES 335. I just couldn't seem to pull a good tone out of it. I recently got a used warmoth partscaster. It's basically a thinline tele with humbucker pockets. I've got a few pickups lying around. I plan on going with a DiMarzio humbucker from hell in neck position and a lace sensor blue/red dually in the bridge. I've never played the dually before, but its supposed to have some PAF-like qualities. So can anyone else relate to having trouble making PAF's work for them? Any pro tips on getting the most out of this new axe? Should I just leave PAF's alone and stick to what I know?
