Some of the most iconic recordings ever set to vinyl were produced on the Gibson Les Paul with the “Patent Applied For” pickup which, with its glass-like chime and haunting mids, represents the heart and soul of classic rock and the foundation upon which all subsequent guitar tone has evolved. The analysis within these 4-color pages precisely examines that very heart and soul, investigating its origins, development and rise to stardom...leaving no stone unturned in a quest to understand exactly what it is about the mythology of this particular combination of wires, wood and metal that make it so appealing to the ear, and so irreplaceable to the mix.

Never before has such a revealing peek behind the scenes of the “Patent Applied For” pickup been attempted, but authors Mario Milan and James Finnerty will take you on a photographic tour of the genesis of the P.A.F. pickup with expert attention to every aspect of their engineering and a precise comparison and explanation of the qualities of pickups emanating from different eras. Along the way, myths are debunked, secrets revealed, and mysteries solved, which, along with an exclusive interview with Ted McCarty offer a deep and thorough analysis of that which makes these creations so uniquely special, as well as an explanation of exactly why replication has been so elusive. Well-known pickup winders offer their own diverse and individual perspectives on the reasons for such compelling and enduring appeal.
