Dave Stephensmore PAF info
I found one article that says the early PAF covers were brushed stainless steel to make them look nickel plated, then later they went to nickle plated brass. This guy has a super detailed article on these and good pix:  
I have been trying to find a photo that shows the guts of a PAF to see if they all had keeper bars, if they didn't that would account for some of the single coil tone, but I can't find any really good photos of one taken apart completely. The patent doesn't show a keeper bar but the patent only shows the real early pickup, not the ones that made history in rock and roll. I bought a copy of the patent and am reading it now, very interesting reading, recommended.......Dave
