Classic vintage tone without microphonic squeal.

What makes a great vintage humbucker? A soft magnetic field, sweet tone, a perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. There are many guitar pickups that capture some of these qualities, but DiMarzio wanted to build them all into one pickup, and the DP103N is it.

Partly based on the pickups in Larry DiMarzio's own 1959 Gibson Les Paul and partly on DiMarzio patented technology, the PAF will perform equally well in the neck or bridge position, just as the best humbuckers from the '50s did. Nickel cover, long legged bottom plate.

Recommended For: All positions

Tech Talk: There is no reference standard for the sound of a humbucker pickup from the 1950s. All of them had variations in output and tone, and these differences could be quite large. Recently, DiMarzio has focused their research on making pickups with warm highs and bright lows. This combination is only found in favorite vintage humbuckers, and it's really good for a pickup intended for both the neck and bridge positions. It allows the bass strings in the neck position to avoid muddiness, and the treble strings in the bridge position to be warm and not brittle.

    As reviewed by Zackary Norton on 5/8/2013

    Excellent humbucker! This pickup is surprisingly loud, very dynamic and simply sounds great! I've spent a Ton of time with Duncan's, and more recently, custom wound pickups from Peter Florance and Curtis Novak, all really good, but this dimarzio 36th anniversary is really special. It's super dynamic in a similar way that those really great dearmond gold foil pickups. But is a bigger fuller picture than a gold foil can give. Really nice work dimarzio. I'll be getting more.
