Gibson Les Paul Custom Tim Shaw Humbucker Pickups Guitarwacky.com
In the early 80's Gibson Engineer Tim Shaw designed & created these Pickups in an attempt to recreate the "Holy Grail" - 1959 Gibson PAF (Patent Applied For) Humbucker. They sound INCREDIBLE & can be found in many early eighties Gibson's

Tim Shaw PAF’s were made from 1980-87. The pickups had the ink stamped Number on them.. The first three numbers are identified Neck or Bridge.: 137/138 - 372/373 - 498/499.

The last three indicated the month and year they were made. The above Shaw image is a Bridge Pickup (372) & made (684) June 1984.

Gibson T-Top Humbuckers Pickups Guitarwacky.com
T-Top's have a "T" in the center of the bobbin as seen in pic. T-Tops are definitely one of my favorite and have that powerful vintage Rock tone. They are bright and responsive but many confuse them with Shaw's.

Compare T-Top Sound to PAF in Vid Below.
