Dimarzio PAF Bridge Pickup
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. We've 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 our new PAF. Not just for set-neck 24-3/4 inch scale guitars, this is also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons. Want to go totally retro? The PAF Bridge Model in standard spacing is also available with authentic vintage bobbins in glossy black, glossy double cream or glossy black & cream zebra; vintage "Patent Applied For" long-legged nickel-silver base, 1-conductor cable and your choice of polished and plated or vintage worn cover.
Recommended For: Bridge position, can also be used in neck position with hotter bridge models.
Tech Talk: The PAF bridge model has the best qualities of the Virtual PAF bridge and Virtual Hot PAF pickups and then some. It’s as loud as the VHPAF, but has as much low-end and midrange definition as the VPAF 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.
