Gotoh PAF ID help

Post by Philthy » Mon May 27, 2019 5:38 pm

Hi Guys

Wondering if anyone might be able to shed some light on this Gotoh PAF set that is in my 1985 Robin Artisan (MIJ Chushin Gakki).

Both identical and measure 11.1k.

Thanks

Wow.... that's a great looking guitar. Can honestly say that is the first one I've seen.

I had a LS50 Hamamatsu made in 1981 with thise pickups, they sounded correct, lacked some bass but the guitar could be a factor also. I must have a sound sample somewhere....

Yes, they were called MKII model and avalaible in LS50 and LS60 models where 80s had 57 PAF. Some Goto like 1979 and 80 in a transition period too...
