  CreamTone A3 Deluxe - "MGL Custom Spec" PAF Pickup Set
(Item#739) CreamTone A3 Deluxe "MGL Custom Spec" PAF pickup set. I've been working with Lonnie from CreamTone pickups on a set of "MGL" pickups for a while and couldn't me more happy with the tone of the prototype sets they have wound for me! The set will have A3 magnets with the bridge pickup in the 8.2 - 8.4K range and the neck pickup 7.6K - 7.8K, I've used a set of these pickups in a few of the Dave Johnson makeover guitars recently and they really have a great vintage tone. One of the guitars is now owned by Charlie Daughtry and he has nothing but great things to say about the pickups. Thes pickups rival any of the pickups being made right now and at a very fair price. Choice of bobbin color: double black, zebra or double whites. The A3 Deluxe pickups are scatterwound by hand and feature: butyrate bobbins, plain enamel wire, maple spacers, pure nickel silver long-leg baseplates. Price listed is for exposed bobbins but nickel covers are available for $30.00 installed, light aging of pole pieces - $20.00. NOW ACCEPTING ORDERS
