PLEK……….THE ULTIMATE SETUP!
WOLFE GUITARS have an incredible high tech PLEK machine, and we are offering a SPECIAL PRICE for customers buying a new or pre-owned Guitar or Bass from our shop. Our PLEK robotic fret dressing process is way more accurate and gentler on the frets & fingerboard fret slots than a typical manual filing fret dress. Since the instrument is already here, and going to be setup by us anyway, we’ll do the PLEK service for a deeply discounted price of just $139.00. Included is hand polishing the frets and a full setup. This amazing service is normally $219.00 Our PLEK customers tell us they’re VERY pleased with the results and you will be also.
From the Duncan web site:
Seth Lover Bridge-
Hand built exactly the way Seth Lover designed, these faithful PAFs deliver an open airy humbucker tone for your bridge position. The Seth Lover bridge model gives you that warm airy, open tone by striking just the right balance of low end warmth with a smooth but articulate top end. The alnico 2 bar magnet helps to sweeten the high end response, while the vintage output coils bring out this pickups rich harmonic content. Chords will have a full, open sound, and single notes will have a soft, yet articulate feel. The un-potted nickel silver cover gives the tone an almost piano like percussive quality. The mold we use for our butyrate bobbins was created by the same factory that built the original PAF mold for Gibson. Other key features include our specially manufactured 42AWG plain enamel mag wire, nickel silver cover, 2.5-inch alnico 2 bar magnet, custom machined metal and maple spacers, single conductor push-back braided lead wire, and nickel silver bottom plate.We wind every Seth Lover humbucker on Seymour’s original Leesona winding machine from the early Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI., for that unmistakable vintage tone and feel.
59 NECK- The ’59 Model neck pickup is one of our most popular pickups because it’s so versatile. It’s designed in the spirit of the original PAF humbuckers of the 1950s, with sweet sustain, full-sounding chords, clear and bright attack, but we’ve made a few refinements to slightly modernize the design and make it more adaptable to different styles.
The ’59 has a full low end which is great for adding character to your clean sounds and sustain to your leads. The high end is slightly boosted for improved pick-attack clarity and the mids are a little scooped for an open, smooth sound that’s great for preserving the clarity of the individual notes in a chord. Play softly and the mids and highs seem to fade back, but pick hard and the note will be confident and clear. There isn’t a genre that the ’59 can’t work within. The ’59 Model neck pickup is wound on Seymour’s Leesona 102 pickup winding machine, the very one that was used in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, MI in the 1950s. It comes standard with a long-legged nickel silver bottom plate, vintage single conductor braided push back lead wire and no logo.
The pairing of a 59 in the neck and a Seth Lover in the bridge is a vintage tonal delight.
