    After trying a bunch of fancy PAF style pickups Wizz were the ones that made step back and say "whoa alright, there's something special going on here".

    Very clear and articulate, nothing to hide behind. If that makes sense

    OX4, CB's and Wizz are my favorite PAF's.

    Custombuckers are my favorite though...

    Another vote for WCR Godwoods, which I have in a Grosh semi-hollow, many thanks to the previous owner.

    Still loving my Peter Florence Voodoo '59's in my ES335 - had them since early 2000's - got them recommended by a first-call NYC session guitarist, and was he ever was right. They are no longer flavor of the month, if they ever were, but a lot of players who restored old 335's used them, and I know why - low output trad PAF voiced, that let a 335 be as versatile as it should be. Perhaps worth the time to investigate - you can get Peter on the phone.

    OX4 are nice and articulate. Well balanced, but with a slight upper mid emphasis. Wizz as well. A bit more upper midrange emphasis than Ox4. Can be too bright in an already naturally bright guitar as mine were.

    My favorites are Throbak PG-102 and Rewind Low Winds with an A5 in the bridge.

    Clips of the newer Tone Specific Bloombuckers Sound pretty amazing. Their ‘59 Blues Sound fantastic as well.

    I have WCR Crossroads in a Heritage 535. Sounds great.

    I like my BKP Mules and Riff Raffs. Haven’t tried the Stormy Mondays yet.
