The gibson "Les paul vintage mahogney studio" guitar that i own has the Pro humbuckers in it and a friend said that the pickups are wax potted and the windings are slightly mis matched to produce the sound from the old P.A.F. pickups....I was wondering if that was true.

They are discontinuing this guitar and it seems they are just calling it a studio now and putting the 490' s in with the same finish.....I do not see any specs for these pickups anywhere ?
