    DiMarzio DP223 PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge Pickup Product Description

    There was no such thing as a "neck" or "bridge" humbucker in the 1950s, but there was a wide range of performance between individual pickups which made some better suited to one position. Some of the old pickups had a lot of wire on the coils, which created more power and a warmer tone. DiMarzio used technology to duplicate these qualities - without sacrificing the presence and open sound of the best vintage humbuckers - to bring you the PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge Model, a hotter version of their PAF 36th Anniversary.

    Not just for set-neck 24-3/4 inch scale guitars, the 36th Anniversary Bridge Model is also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons. Want to go totally retro? The PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge Model in standard spacing features authentic vintage bobbins in glossy black, glossy double cream or glossy black & cream zebra.

    Recommended For: Bridge position, can also be used in neck position with hotter bridge models.

    Tech Talk: The PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge model has the best qualities of the Virtual PAF bridge and Virtual Hot PAF pickups and then some. It's as loud as the VHPAF, but has as much low-end and midrange definition as the VPAF bridge model. The highs are actually bigger and smoother than either model. The 4-conductor version also splits very well. Single-coil mode is bright, but not at all sterile-sounding.
