Revel Post-Modern P.A.F.

(7 customer reviews)



The Post-Modern P.A.F. is for the player in need of more output than the O.G. Built with the same commitment to the best of the 50’s P.A.F., the Post-Modern more easily drives an amp and delivers a thick, warm and complex tone.

Order these as stock wound or under-wound. The under-wound Post-Modern differs from the O.G. in the use of Alnico IV as opposed to Alnico II. While Alnico II has a decisively vintage feel and tone, Alnico IV has a more balanced EQ response, is more compressed, a little brighter, and thicker.

Stock Neck 8.2k, Bridge: 9k,

Under-wound Neck: 7.3k, Bridge: 8.4k

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.

    These pups sound amazing! Really brought out the tone that my PRS seemed to be missing…..richer & fuller. Jesse has a wonderful thing going and I will definitely get my next pickups from him!

    I’ve had Gibson dirty fingers, burstbuckers and a few of the hotter Seymour Duncan pickups, including the pearly gates and I can say without a doubt that Revel pickups have more character, more unique tone and a crisper bite. Definitely the best pick ups I’ve ever had. Also, Jesse is great to work with and helps figure out everything you’re looking for in tone and looks.

    Slapped this guy in my personal LG (teleish) model and it woke it up. Super responsive humbucker. Could not be happier!

    I’ve tried every humbucker there is to try. These are IT! Thanks, Jesse. These are what I actually wanted for Christmas.

  5. Joshua Wright

    The rating for these should go up to 11! Jesse is very easy to talk to and knows his craft. He delivered on exactly what I wanted and I couldn’t be more happy. These pickups are the real deal.

    Love this product! Jesse was very helpful with making sure I selected the pickup that would work best with my sound. This thing sounds amazing in my tele! Will definitely buy more in the future. Very impressed with the customer service!

    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.
