DiMarzio PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge Model DP223 There was no such thing as a "neck" or "bridge" humbucker in the 1950s, but there was a wide range of performance between individual pickups which made some better suited to one position. Some of the old pickups had a lot of wire on the coils, which created more power and a warmer tone. DiMarzio has used new technology to duplicate these qualities - without sacrificing the presence and open sound of the best vintage humbuckers - to bring you the PAF Bridge Model, a hotter version of the DP103 36th Anniversary PAF.Not just for set-neck 24 3/4" scale guitars, this is also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons.
Recommended For: Bridge position, can also be used in neck position with hotter bridge models.
Tech Talk: The PAF 36th Anniversary bridge model has the best qualities of theDimarzio Virtual PAF DP197 and Virtual Hot PAF pickups and then some. Its as loud as the PAF , but has as much low-end and midrange definition as the PAF bridge model. The highs are actually bigger and smoother than either model. The 4-conductor version also splits very well. Single-coil mode is bright, but not at all sterile-sounding.
