The PAF Pro is a great building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Unlike many darker sounding pickups which can get muddy when run through a large effects chain, the PAF Pro slices through heavy processing. Low notes are chunky, and there is a spike in the midrange that results in a subtle "aw" vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal left in the middle of its sweep. High notes stand out clearly without getting harsh. The PAF Pro is an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it's a great bridge pickup in situations where high output isn't needed.
