MAX STAVRON -Doyle Coils TRU-CLONES PAF Humbucker Pickups - Keepers of the Flame - That Vintage PAF Sound can be yours! Tom Doyle Pickups



Max Stavron has been in the music and guitar business for over 30 years... Max has been a guitar tech, guitar builder, collector, trader, and aficionado of all things guitar for all of that time and more... especially the Les Paul guitar. "My very first good electric guitar was a brand new Gibson Les Paul Standard in that traditional cherry burst that I bought with the money I had saved from odd jobs as a kid... it was a brand new '75 Model. I saw Jimmy Page playing one and I just had to have one too!", remembers Max. "I plugged that thing into a big loud Marshall amp, pounded out one big power chord... and I was hooked". Its been a love affair ever since. In 1983 Max met Tom when a good friend recommended that Tom work on Max's guitars. "If Tom was good enough to work on Les Paul's guitars, then he's good enough for me!", Max said.

Max Stavron went to see Tom in his shop in Northern New Jersey and the two quickly became friendly way back in the early 80's. Tom got a kick out of Max's enthusiasm about Les Paul and offered to introduce him to Les Paul personally. Most young guys at that time didn't think much about Les Paul... or seem to care one way or the other. Most young six-stringers were playing "pointy" guitars at that time... and Les Paul was not really on anybody's radar in the early 80's. Les had been "retired" for quite a long time, and had just started playing out again at this little hole-in-the-wall called Fat Tuesdays on Monday nights. Well, Max just had to see this for himself... so Tom invited Max to come early to one of the early shows and watch sound check, hang out, and get a good seat right up front. "I sat right next to Les, right up in front... I was three feet away, and I loved it." says Max. "I went to 3 or 4 shows and then when I went to Tom's shop he invited me to go up to Les Paul's house" - Max jumped at the chance to go see one of his idols at his house!

Tom Doyle was Les Paul's personal guitar tech, luthier, co-inventor, soundman, confidant, and "fixer" for 45 years... right up until the time of Les' passing. Suffice it to say that all that time at the side of "The Master" has given Tom the experience and know how that no one else on the entire planet can possibly have. He and Les Paul worked together refining and redefining what an electric guitar could and should sound like... a true labor of love that still lasts till this day. Now you can have a piece of that history. Many have come along and attempted to recreate the sound, look, feel, and tone of the famous '57 PAF Humbucker that is "the sound" in every tone chasers head throughout the world... and some have come close, others not so close. However, none have had the first hand knowledge, the actual day-to-day first person experience and the hands on background that Tom Doyle has. Tom is nothing less than a walking, talking historical encyclopedia of all things Les Paul, guitars, electronics, sound, and musical history from the last 50+ years... from the artists to the instruments, to the gear they were using, to the experiments they tried, and everything in between!  Tom has been called "The Luthier to the Stars".

As close to THE REAL PAF you can get without spending thousands of dollars!
