Have you ever wondered what a Fifties humbucker sounded like when it was new, before the magnet weakened and beer got poured on it? This is the sound: no gimmicks, just clean, open tone with enough top end for sparkle and low end for warmth. The best word for it is "balanced". It's loud enough in the neck position to pair with hotter bridge pickups like the Super Distortion® (a classic combination), and it's a neat bridge pickup to go with neck and middle single-coils. Like all DiMarzio humbuckers, the PAF® is wax-dipped in a custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics (something no one liked about the Fifties pickups), and it has 4-conductor cable for split and series-parallel wiring.

Recommended For: Neck and bridge positions in all solid, semihollow and hollow body guitars.

Tech Talk: There are two basic types of vintage humbuckers: those that have a hotter, like new tone and those that have a softer, aged sound. The Air Classic™ has the softer sound, and the PAF® is a little tighter and tougher–very useful for cleaning up muddy-sounding neck positions. Its also good as a bridge pickup combined with neck & middle single-coils: not loud enough to overwhelm them, and bright enough to blend well.
