    The goldfold is an aesthetic choice, it's not actually designed to sold like old school harmony goldfoils?

    Yes, just cosmetic.
    These would sound just like a paf style pickup

    There was literally just someone asking for 7.2K humbuckers with A5s on TDPRI Just Pickups. I recommended T-Tops replicas, but this is pretty much it in terms of the specs he asked for (minus the unique aesthetics).

    How different would this 40 awg unit be than the pickups in my gibson 13 studio dlx? A 490R in the neck position and a BurstBucker Pro at bridge. I like these pickups but want a different top notch tone for another lp or SG.

    Iirc 42 awg is pretty common and the smaller diam 43 let's you get more turns on a bobbin casing much higher dc ohms?
    Seems something in 40 should be a fairly radical tone change.

    This would be vastly different.
    Not many pickups are made with 40awg, most 8k range humbuckers would be 42awg. A duncan jb is 44awg.
    Hard to describe its tone but a good reference point would be the Lollar El Rayo.

    40AWG is fencing wire. Changes the tone of a cow's moo.
