I like a good PAF humbucker, but I have noticed that finding one might be tough. I have been reading various discussions found via Google searches. One thread extols the virtues of Gibson Classic 57s (and there is agreement that the 490R and 490T are terrible -- despite very similar specs). Then another poster elsewhere asks for a Seymour Duncan equivalent to a Classic 57 and the overwhelming response is that there are none... and it is a good thing as the Classic 57s are muddy and terrible! "You need a set of Seth Lover's", "No, WLHs > Seth Lovers" No, Pearly Gates > Seth Lovers." Elsewhere: "Shawbuckers are awesome" and then, "Shawbuckers suck." OMG. This is killing me! I have picked up guitars and thought the humbuckers were too muddy for me while others I like much more, so I get that there is a difference. But can sets of alnico 2, vintage wind, humbuckers really be THAT different?
