Virtual Hot PAF Bridge
Who knew Times have changed, but the clean, bright-yet-warm tone of the best vintage pickups still sets the standard for electric guitar sound. The Virtual PAF(TM) captures the finest qualities of 50s and early 60s humbuckers to create a great sound. Patented Airbucker(TM) and Virtual Vintage technology permit the use of an Alnico 5 magnet to generate the same low string-pull that an Alnico 2 or 3 produces, and combine two of the most sought-after tonal characteristics low note clarity and high note warmth. The neck model has a pure, bell-tone chime and the Bridge model has a thicker, "woody" sound. The Virtual PAF(TM) comes with 4-conductor cable.
An obvious question is the differences between the Virtual PAF(TM) and models like the PAF and Air Classic(TM) The Virtual Vintage technology in the Virtual PAF(TM) adds a subtle, 3-dimensional presence to the overall tonality. Its particularly noticeable in the tonal balance between high and low notes the high E string doesnt get brittle-sounding on the high frets, and the low E string doesnt mud out on the lowest frets. Another advantage to the technology can be heard in split (single) coil mode. Most lower-output humbuckers have a very thin sound in this mode, but the Virtual PAF(TM) has a warmer, more solid split sound. This also makes the bridge model very useful in 3-pickup S-S-H guitars, because the Virtual PAF(TM) balances very well with many single-coils in both humbucking and split modes.
