One variation that's highly sought after by vintage PAF players is a pickup that is quiet, bright, and very dynamic. The PAF Master Bridge Model has all that combined with real rock-and-roll character. It reacts to playing, and sounds good when playing more than one note at the same time. Picked hard, it has a beautiful, snarly, thick, rockin' tone.
Recommended for bridge. Can also be used in neck position.
DiMarzio chose Alnico 4 for the PAF Master Bridge Model because of its high iron content and energy coefficient. AL4 lends more body and attack to the sound than you might expect from a pickup with relatively low output voltage and DC resistance specs. The PAF Master Bridge Model is not a loud pickup, but it feels hot because of its fast and aggressive response to pick attack.

Comments about DiMarzio DP261 PAF Master Humbucker Bridge F-Spaced Pickup:
I was looking for an F-spaced bridge humbucker that would match well with The Cruiser neck pickup. This PAF Master was just what the Doctor ordered. The tone is clear and dynamic ranging from light picking even response to hard picking and very punchy. High output pickups cannot match the dynamic capabilities of this pickup. The F-spacing keeps the pole pieces aligned under the strings on my Floyd Rose bridge. I actually bought two sets of these as well as two sets of the Cruiser pickups and installed in both my main axes.
