If you want to replicate the elusive tone of Joe Bonamassa’s 1958 Korina Flying V, this set of humbuckers will get you there. The Joe Bonamassa Amos Pickup Set will infuse your playing with PAF-like warmth and clarity, along with unusually robust output courtesy of its brawny Alnico VI magnets. Wound on the same machine as Gibson’s prized ’50s and ’60s humbuckers, these pickups are an exact match for the ones in Joe’s Flying V, right down to the period-correct butyrate bobbins and maple spacers. On top of that, each pickup has been hand-signed by the famous bluesman himself, along with Seymour W. Duncan.

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.

This is #195 out of 979 sets, never to be made again. They are in great shape, works perfectly and sound amazing. They will ship out the next day with the original box, etc.
