    I'm selling a pair of Throbak Ed Reynolds humbuckers. Throbak winds these on the actual winding machines that used to wind actual PAFs in Kalamazoo back in the day. They're in great shape with all the original leads in tact. Buyer will get the pair of humbuckers, the mounting screws, mounting springs, and a Throbak pick. Same set cost $540 new. I'm asking $420 shipped anywhere in CONUS. PM if you want them.

    Here's the description from the Throbak website:

    The ER-Custom name is a nod to well know Austin Texas luthier and repairman Ed Reynolds and his help with developing this special set of vintage PAF humbucker pickups. Ed was on a search for a set of humbucker pickups that met the needs of one of his well known clients. The result of this collaboration with Ed is a full sounding, punchy, mid dominant vintage PAF pickup repro with a pleasing high end. ER-Custom MXV pickups sound great in solid body LP style and semi-hollow ES-335 style guitars. The ER-Custom MXV set is a popular upgrade option for Collings electric guitars. ER-Custom humbucker pickups are wound on the ThroBak vintage Leesona-102 to complete the Maximum Vintage specs.. Made in USA.

    • Vintage PAF clone Butyrate bobbins tooled and molded in the USA to vintage specs..

    • Coils wound on vintage Leesona 102 winder for unsurpassed vintage winding accuracy.

    • PAF repro baseplates tooled and stamped in the USA for ThroBak.

    • 50's PAF repro covers stamped in USA and Nickel plated (with no Copper) at the same Kalamazoo shop that plated vintage PAF covers.

    • Pole screws with vintage alloys cloned from 50's vintage PAF screws with cold form die tooled for ThroBak. Made in USA.

    • Slugs with vintage alloys cut with a vintage Brown and Sharpe automatic screw machine for correct vintage look. Made in USA.

    • Vintage Spec. Plain Enamel 42AWG magnet wire made with vintage coating and processes. Made in USA.

    • Alnico magnets custom cast in the USA with vintage formulations.

    • Vintage correct braided wire. Made in USA.​
