This is an RS twist on the classic Patent Applied For tones. The Bridge pickup features unbalanced and unpotted coils, with Alnico II magnets. It’s medium-output, so it’s got the full tone you want with a good dose of single-coil sting. The Neck pickup also has unbalanced and unpotted coils, and has a low wind for a clearer neck tone. If you'd like a potted PAF for reduced squeal or feedback, we have those available, too. Includes mounting screws and springs. These pickups are sold individually.

Available in Black, Zebra, New & Aged Nickel and Gold covers.

Stock nickel covers are raw solid nickel covers. Please contact for aged, buffed or polished nickel covers.

Available in unpotted and potted versions.

  • Bridge DC: 7.7K
  • Neck DC: 7.1K

We highly recommend the RS Vintage Upgrade Kit; you can view the short-shaft and long-shaft versions for Les Paul, SG, and 335 below:

When you have decided on the model and specifications of your dream guitar or bass, you can either place the order online, or call us to discuss any details or specific questions/requests. Once your build has been finalized, a minimum of a 50% deposit is required to start the build.  If you’ve purchased the guitar outright from us – this deposit does not apply. 

From the time you have placed your order or deposit, you have two weeks to make any changes. After that, all specifications are final. Actual build time is based on the exact options chosen, but typically our build time is about four months.

Month 1

  • Choose your model and options. After determining what you want and you have either placed your order online or confirmed options with us, your deposit will be due.
  • After the deposit is made, you will have two weeks to make any changes.

  • Once the all details have been finalized, all preliminary woodworking is started.

  • Necks are fretted and final shaped. Body is finish sanded and prepped for paint.
  • All necessary parts/hardware are ordered.


Month 2

  • Body and neck go to paint. This stage can take several weeks to properly apply lacquer depending on color and aging level. 
  • Due to the nature of nitrocellulose lacquer, the guitars are allowed to cure for four weeks.


Month 3

  • In the middle of month 3 the bodies and necks, once completely dry, come out of the booth for wet sanding and buffing. 
  • Depending on the level of aging requested, the body, neck and all hardware are put in the aging process.


Month 4

  • Frets are leveled and crowned. The nut is cut. 
  • After all appropriate aging is complete the guitar will go into final assembly. 
  • After final assembly, we allow a minimum of one week for the guitar to acclimate before we perform the final setup. 
  • When everything is completed, you will be contacted to pay the balance and submit any final details in regards to shipping.

When you receive your guitar or bass, you have 2 days to contact us with any concerns you might have. We strive for 100% satisfaction, so any issues or concerns you may have will be addressed promptly. All of our instruments come with a lifetime warranty to the original owner.
