i have a set of lollar emperial standard wind and they sound pretty great. I am curious about the boutique paf pickups and have been doing some research on all the high end winders. Including throbak, wizz, ox4, Doyle coils..... All really great pickups. Then I found out about the wcr Jim Wagner PAF's and found a good deal on them and pulled the trigger. I hope they're a better fit for me than the lollars which I do like. They're just a little too flat for my liking. They don't have a lot of personality iMO. That can be cool sometimes because they take on pedals really well but something is missing for me in the cleans. I do a lot of clean jazz so that's important. I also want them to be a little dirtier with some drive too. I feel like it's a very polite and polished pickup. Maybe that's the difference between potted and unpotted PAF's?
