pretty sure they're both alnico. no one would make a PAF style pickup with ceramics.

they're probably the same pickup, one is just overwound to 10k, the other is just REALLY overwound to 14k.

Yeah I think both Alnico V probably. I have the Fat PAF in the neck of my G400, the tone is very squishy and round/warm. Very good for cleans and mild distortion, but I don't like it with heavy gain.

I haven't tried the Crunchy PAF, but I would put that one in the bridge position.

The Crunchy Pat and Fat Pat are the same... just different mags. Crunchy has Ceramic, Fat has Alnico V. 10k neck 14k bridge.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

So with that in mind, how will the different mags make them sound different?

Using ceramics in PAF style pickups is blasphemous.

Alnico; (generally) warmer tone, sweeter top end, more open tone.
Ceramics; (generally) harsher, more grind, brighter top, can be wound hotter without losing high end so you see them a lot in higher output pickups.
