This is a DiMarzio 36th Anniversary PAF humbucker pickup in black for the neck position. Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone.These pickups are not merely clones. DiMarzio re-engineered the PAFÂ® using patented technology and Larry DiMarzioâ€™s own 1959 cherry sunburst Les PaulÂ® as the reference. Larryâ€™s Les PaulÂ® has a uniquely amazing sound and itâ€™s not only due to the pickups - itâ€™s the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field, the sound is well defined - almost like a single-coil. DiMarzio duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer, as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. They use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire, achieving the exact frequency response wanted. Then itâ€™s dipped in a custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The PAFÂ® 36th Anniversary Neck is smooth but not muddy. It performs equally well in the neck or bridge, just as the best humbuckers from the 50s did.
