The Revel O.G. P.A.F. is based on the best of the vintage 50’s Gibson P.A.F. pickups but with the improvements of standardization and offset precision. It is clear, articulate, and vintage in tone. The lower output lends itself to exceptional expression and dynamics compared to other humbuckers.
These are built with Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 gauge plain enamel enamel wire. Played clean the O.G. sings. Played dirty it is smooth. Wonderful note separation and tonal complexity.
Neck 7.5k, Bridge 8.1k
A NOTE ABOUT SOUND CLIPS:
Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. Both have very limited meaning and are, in many ways, lies. The best player can make the lousiest guitar loaded with the cheapest pickups played through the lamest amp sound downright amazing. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.

First of all, when you send an inquiry Sunday night at 9:15pm and get a response from the owner himself in 15 minutes you know you are dealing with someone who is passionate about their craft.
I was looking for a custom PUP and with minimal back-and-forth Jesse aimed me to a modified OG. I installed it in my Les Paul and this pickup really brings out the personality in the instrument. Dynamic, smooth and allows you to hammer out a rhythm riff anywhere on the fretboard.
I highly recommend Revel. Good product, good price and good turn around time.
Put a full set in my PRS CE-22, attack, clarity in the midrange and general musicality of these are amazing. Exactly what I wanted!

Just installed one of these in the neck position of my Tele and I couldn’t be happier. This was my first time purchasing pickups and Jesse made the process so much easier and more fun. This pickup is rich sounding with a ton of personality. With a bit of dirt it is raunchy and soulful, out of a clean amp, it’s buttery and refined. Like a good tube amp, this pickup is super dynamic and responds to your playing.

Killer tone. Exactly what I was looking for – and I’ve been through a lot of pickups. What a treat to play! Jesse is the man!
This bloke is the real deal. In my Keef tribute guitar, volume down is the prettiest sound EVER, like an angel’s harp, but MUCH better! You NEED this pickup!

Hard to not sound like I’m using hyperbole when describing these pickups. It’s that tone that you know the second that you hear is what you have been looking for.
I’ve played through almost every boutique pickup you have heard of and I am now switching them all out for Revels (these replaced Duncan Antiquities).
If I can pass one one thing about these pickups, it is the even tone from top to bottom. Revel really knows what a pickup can do for a guitar’s tone and he tweaks every aspect to maximize the investment you’ve put into not just the pickups, but your guitar as well.
His return policy is second to none, so there is no reason to not see for yourself.
P.S. I opted for the Peter Green mod and it is awesome!

When it comes to PAF humbuckers for my Equator models, Revel Custom Pickups has become my go-to. Jesse worked patiently with me to design a humbucker set for this particular guitar model, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Great guy. Great service. Great pickups.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I had a Revel O.G. humbucker installed in my favorite guitar, and it sounds absolutely amazing! It has the perfect blend of bite and fatness. Love it!”

Back in 2014, Jesse Revel of Revel Pickups built a custom set of humbuckers for me. They were for a 1977 Ibanez SG. He listened carefully to what I was looking for, offered some helpful advice, and ultimately built a set that were similar to Lollar High Winds. Manufacture and delivery were timely, and communication was great. I was very satisfied with the pickups, and working with Revel was a great experience overall.

“The Revel O.G. gives me exactly what I was looking for but couldn’t quite find. A modern performing pickup that has just the right amount of vintage appeal. Made a good guitar GREAT.”

One of the best set of humbuckers I have ever bought or played. Jesse spent A LOT of time answering my questions and designing my pickups. He’s very knowledgeable and patient. Great prices. Great pickups. And local! 612 represent.
