      DiMarzio Classic Rock Humbucker Pre-Wired Pickup Set - Long Shaft Pots (H02742)
Availability:  


The Classic Rock Humbucker Pre-Wired Pickup Set with Long Shaft Pots includes the PAF 36th Anniversary humbucker, Super Distortion humbucked F-spaced, and complete wiring harness with solderless installation. Includes long shaft pots for LP guitars made since 1977 (Historic series not included).

The PAF® 36th Anniversary Neck DP103 humbucker
It combines all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. It's not merely a clone— DiMarzio re-engineered the PAF® using their patented technology and Larry DiMarzio's own 1959 cherry sunburst Les Paul® as the reference. Larry's Les Paul® has a uniquely amazing sound and it's not only due to the pickups—it's the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field, the sound is well defined—almost like a single-coil. We duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer, as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. We use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire, achieving the exact frequency response we want. Then it's dipped in our custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The cover is made from nickel-silver and our new plating makes it more magnetically transparent than the originals. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck humbucker is smooth but not muddy.

Super Distortion DP100 (F-spaced)
This pickup started a sound revolution. Replacement pickups simply didn't exist before the invention of the Super Distortion® in the early Seventies. The Super Distortion (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound®) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion® has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound. The balance of tones is classic—thick, boosted mids, big lows and fat highs. This is the sound you've heard for over 3 decades on platinum records, from players as varied as Ace Frehley, Al Di Meola, and Paul Gilbert. It's also versatile: 4-conductor wiring allows instant access to Strat-like split and series-parallel modes. Discover what thousands of great players know: the Super Distortion® is the best all-around high-power pickup ever made.
The Super Distortion® is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies: hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.

    As reviewed by JOHN on 11/21/2014

    This is the upgrade that makes your Les Paul come alive. The super distortion blows away any stock les Paul pickup. I have used DiMarzio pick ups since the 70s and they have never let me down. Hands down the First and Best pick up on the market. Say what you want but all other pickup companies have copied the super distortion or tried too.
