I was wondering what the actual tonal differences these 2 pickups are, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

One main difference is that the Paf Joe uses a Ceramic Magnet while the Paf Pro uses alnice 5. I think the magnet type is one of the reasons that the Paf Joe sounds a little tighter.

The Joe also has more output and some additional sustain. I think both are decent pups so I can't really recommend one over the other.
