Vintage Tone for Vintage Junkies!
The Anthems are Porter Pickups' take and tribute to the classic original PAF humbucker design.
Yup - it has been done and done over the years. Every pickup winder has their own version or tribute to the PAF Humbucker.
Yet it is generally agreed that no two PAF’s are the same and this is where the rabbit hole deepens.
The Porter Anthem PAF Humbuckers make new guitars sound like old guitars and give you the tones you hear on the old recordings. They accurately translate your playing style and respond well to different guitar, amp, and effect setups without losing their clarity and punch.
"With the Anthems, we’ve put in several elements that have been found in our favourite PAF’s. The end result is a pickup that is balanced well and responds to pick attack, and your playing. The Anthems have plenty of rich harmonic clarity to spare and a killer vintage translation of your playing style." - Brian Porter, Porter Pickups.
