I mean, we've moved on. The PAF was invented 57 years ago. Those pickups were made in a time when people didn't know much about sound. Now we have much better amps, tons of effect pedals, an enormous choice of speakers and cabinets, very user-friendly recording software etc.
Why are 9 out of 10 pickup makers just trying to copy a 60 year-old design that wasn't made with the current gear in mind?
Who says vintage is better? Personally I prefer a brand new car to, let's say a Ford made in 1908. Why not make pickups that are suited for today's needs?
