Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Amos Flying V Pickup Set Black
The sound of the Amos Flying V is uniquely robust compared to other PAF loaded guitars. Careful examination of the original pickups revealed something unique: unusually strong magnetism, which could only be replicated by using Alnico 6 magnets. Although Alnico 6 might seem like an odd choice for a PAF replica, the result is surprisingly warm, clear and powerful and matches the tone of the originals.
We're also offering a reproduction cover option painstakingly hand crafted in the custom shop to replicate the wear pattern of the original Amos pickups. Of course, if gold's not your thing, we also offer nickel and uncovered options, like black and zebra.
Each set is built using period-correct butyrate bobbins, maple spacers, and wound on the same historic Leesona winding machine originally used by Gibson in the fifties and sixties, and will be hand-signed by Seymour W. Duncan and Joe Bonamassa.
