Classic vintage tone without microphonic squeal.

The DiMarzio PAF DP103 humbucker pickup has a smooth, almost voice-like quality and that intangible swell to the notes after attack. It possesses vintage output and breathes freely with an open, warm character. Played flat-out through a non-master volume tube amp, the 36th anniversary PAF recreates the deep character of the great plug-in, turn-up and wail school of tone. Modern potting techniques and tight, consistent winding eliminates squeal and microphonics common to the original guitar pickups.

  • Vintage Tone meets High Def. Clarity

    As reviewed by Garrett Redman on 5/7/2013

    Bought them as a pair to replace pickups in a LP style body. In the bridge, it's got a wonderful balance between smooth round tone and bite. In the neck, it's like a Duncan '59 on steroids, rolling back the Vol knob opens up a broad spectrum of tones, without the signal loss that you often find with doing so. Really great stuff.

  • Great Pickup!

    As reviewed by Adam on 6/29/2010

    I am really pleased how well this pickup has added a whole new flavor to my Gibson SG! Before adding the DP103, the pickup was very dead and rather muddy--not great for solo work. But now, I have all kinds of tone on demand, and an entirely new richness with my neck pickup. If you're looking for a vintage-sounding pickup with modern levels of volume and tone, you can;t go wrong with the DP103!

  • DiMarzio PAF DP103 Humbucker 36th Anniversary

    As reviewed by Kevin on 3/21/2011

    Bought a brand new 2004 Heritage Black Beauty Les Paul from Kalamazoo with HRW pickups. Between the overwound brightness of the HRW's and the ebony fingerboard, this guitar would not warm up. Ive had countless pickups in it over the years. I replaced the neck pickup once again about a year ago with the DP 103. My Gosh! I now have a Les Paul equivalent to the sound of my first 1973 Gibson black beauty! Thats what I was looking for in the first place. Still love the sound and Im well past the honeymoon period. They are as great sounding clean as they are overdriven, open, vocal, and articulate. The guitar is also wired like the 50's Les Paul's with independent controls FWIW. If you want your Les Paul to be more like a Les Paul or simply want more Les Paul out of your Les Paul, this is perfect for the neck position.
