So what is wax potting and what does it have to do with a PAF guitar pickup? Wax potting is process now commonly used to eliminate feedback through the pickup by saturating the entire pickup assembly with molten wax. Although common today, wax potted was never used by Gibson when making guitar pickups in the 1950's and 1960's. The question is, does this no wax vintage specification have an impact on the feel and tone of a P.A.F. pickup? In this video I explore that question with an A/B shootout between a P.A.F. repro with no wax vs. the same pickup wax potted.
