Anyone tried low wound PAF’s in a Prospect?


Recommended Posts

I have an early 2000 era Propect, and have been thinking about replacing the stock Seth Lover’s with something like the low wound Lollar pickups.  Has anyone replaced pickups on this guitar, with positive results?

I haven’t tried that in a Prospect, but I have tried lower output pickups in a 535 and I really liked the results. Lowering the Seth Lovers further away from the strings by just a few millimeters can make your current pickups lower output. If you haven’t tried that, you might want to consider that first.

A good underwound PAF would MAKE you roll back the Tone a little. Super 74 Custombuckers are hands down the best.

The best for what?

Like a previous poster-I too had Lollars  low wind Imperials in a 535, and I loved them! 
My Prospect also has the Seth Lovers, while a great PUP; I did like the Lollars more (especially in the neck). I have zero experience with lowering or raising pup height, so I can’t comment on that aspect. 
 

good luck!

EVERYTHING !!!

I can tell you found your holy grail in a pickup.  That saves years of fussing.

In a way I envy the guys in the 1930s.  They either played acoustic or electric.  If they chose the latter, it was a Charlie Christian almost always.  That still is a popular pickup among Telecaster and some other guitars.  Life was simpler then.

I'm with MartyGrass.    The problem is that when there are 200 choices,  it's hard to say know anything for certain.   What's good for one is junk for another.  

As a wise man once said,   "Just play the f*****g thing!"
