      Super-hot spice that won't get lost in the sauce.

      The DiMarzio PAF Pro® was created when chops-intensive playing was reaching high popularity, and high-gain amps and rack systems were the norm. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and "cut" with an open-sounding PAF® vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro® slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the midrange that gives the pickup a subtle "aw" vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked, so high notes stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro® makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it's an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.

      The PAF Pro® is a dependable choice right across the board -- neck and bridge positions, solidbody, semi-hollow and hollowbody guitars are equally effective uses.

      This is a great building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Try it in the neck position with a hotter bridge pickup - anything from a Norton® to a Super Distortion® will create a calibrated two-humbucker match. As a bridge pickup, it's really effective with single-coils, because it won't drown them out with too much power, and it's bright enough to blend in tone-wise.

      Features
      • Really cuts through heavy mix
      • Retains definition in long signal chain
      • Bold lows

      I put one in the bridge of my rg 550 and the guitar is now oozin tone.I have a classic 550 with a maple fretboard.The tone I get is very paul gilbert like.It just has the right amount of everything to sum things up tonewise.Sustain is not that much improved from the old V2 humbucker, but there is a difference in sustain not by much though.In coil split this puppy sounds good as well, it can get very twangy in combination with the middle pup.For solos this thing just cuts through like a knife, but be careful though.It gives away your mistakes pretty easy.Easy on those bends XDIm just havin a blast with this humbucker I wanted something that would retain my original 'acoustic' guitar tone without adding too much and this pup just did that.These pups rely heavily on the players techniqueif you play good than you will sound great with these.

      After researching and reading really good comments about this pup, I decided to give it a try and found that it sounds clean and glassy but very little sustain and poor harmonics, compared to the AirNorton that I installed in one of my guitars. The Norton has a fat sound, warm tones and it doesn't get muddy at all, very responsive for soloing with heavy distortion and superb for cleans, very versatile, you can play blues, jazz, ska, hard rock, classic rock, etc. To me the Air norton is phenomenal and a must have... PAF PRO sounds good but not as good as I expected.

      Vintage Modern kinda vibe!

      By wb

      from SD,California U.S.A

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      I agree with many that say its a great neck pick up. I bought the bridge version F-space and installed it on my warmoth maple neck maple fretboard,alder strat body in bridge position,definetly NOT disappointed! great warm tone and very good clarity,awesome chunk on the low end when needed and warm solo notes. My pedals are simple, Boss TU-3,Boss OD-3 and Boss DD-20.
      My amp is Roland JC-120 loaded with Texas Heats. I gig almost every weekend and this guitar with PAF Pro and two Dimarzio area 58 neck/middle is becoming my go to guitar. Highly recommend it in the bridge if your looking for a versatile pick up which can pump out vintage modern vibe.

      PAF Pro

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      I'm buying this because I have the same thing in another guitar and I was looking for the same tone in my backup. It did exactly what I wanted it to. It's only an 8 because it's awefuly expensive. I know that DiMarzio and SD (and others) put a lot of effort into development and have extensive product lines but there are 16 solid body guitar models for less than $150 on this site right now and a ton more under $200. There is no way that component costs, like pickups, can be nearly as high as we are charged. For example the Charvel Desolation Double Cutaway is listed at $599 with EMG 81/85s. Those pickups are $200 for the set. Is it possible that the pickups represent 1/3 the overall cost of the guitar? They are more likely less than a hundred and maybe as low as $50 to the manufacturer. I know that I have to pay more than someone buying bulk but 10%, 20% or even 50% more seems to be much cheaper than we have to pay at retail. I don't begrudge anyone there livelyhood but I don't think that I will be dropping this kind of coin on pickups anymore.
      Has 5 wires so that you can coil-split. It comes with mounting screws and springs but does not come with trim rings.
      I've never had a quality issue with a DiMario pickup and this continues the trend.
      As one of their older models, this one isn't as expensive as some of their offerings but it is about double the cost of something from GFS, for example.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      My Ibanez now sounds like a guitar in the 900-1000 dollar range. Fred in bridg and Paf in the neck. These pickups are so versatile and full of life. I'd suggest them to anyone and everyone.
      Excellent pickup for neck position. Clarity and thickness are superb. Very happy.
      It's Dimarzio, nuff said.

      Paf Pro-Shred this

      By Yord

      from Omaha

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      Fist-If your not into leads this pickups isn't for you. I use this pickup in the bridge of a Ibanez Rg with a 5150 II and just absolutely love it. I have been playing on EMG's for years and now using this Paf Pro is just delightful. Its very clean~ I can play a C chord with lost of distortion and still hear it, not just wall of mud. Plus its not a noisy pickup so if your doing breakdowns and stuff you can pull off your noise gate and it sounds better. I use a Paf Joe in the neck in combination with this and luvin it. Lastly you cant hide much with this pickups so beware emg users.

      AMAZING PICKUP

      By x2n420

      from Los Angeles, CA

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      I got this pup installed in the neck of my warlock and it is truly remarkable. The amount of styles you can play with this pickup is outstanding, thrash, funk, jazz, rockabilly, etc can be played with a quick tweek on the eq and the tone is heart breaking. I got an X2N in the bridge and that gives me all the versatility I need to play any style of music that comes to mind. Highly recommended.

      Sweet Tone

      By TooManyStrats

      from CapeCod, MA

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      I recently replaced the stock Fender pickups of my American Strat HH with the DiMarzio PAF Pro in the neck and the Super Distortion in the bridge. It immediately became my favorite guitar. The PAF Pro gives such smooth sweet tone for blues and rock, just perfect. Matched with the Super Distortion in the bridge has given me all the versatility I need, such a wide variety of tones, especially with coil tapping. Perfect for everything from blues to rock to metal. Don't settle for second best, load up your guitar with DiMarzio tone.

      Perfect pickup for me

      By Josh-xld-z

      from Centerville, LA. U.S.A.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      I have an Ibanez RG570 from like '88 or '89, with a Bill Lawrence L500XL in the bridge and a Ibanez IBZ bridge model in the neck for years and loved the sound for distortion and harmonics but not so much when playing clean. I wanted to try PAF Pro's for a long time but was worried they wouldn't be hot enough and I was so wrong. I just bought a pair of F-spaced DiMarzio PAF Pro's to put in the RG570 in the neck and bridge and they were exactly what I've been looking for. The distortion and harmonics are still there, in fact harmonics are a lot easier to get now plus they actually sound better, my tone is a lot better and the PAF Pro's really respond to hard or soft picking which is what I wanted but couldn't get before. I can't get over how great they sound clean, I can play so many more styles of music on the same guitar now. I really love the tone they have although I don't hear the "aw" sound they're described as having. I couldn't be happier with them and I'm playing with old strings, can't wait to hear them with new strings. I plan on getting more to put in my other guitars when I can afford it. I love these pickups and recommend that people at least try them, I think they'll be suprised since they are known for being low powered pickups compared to distortion class pickups. I should mention I only play at home with small portable amps like a Roland Cube 30, Micro Cube, Vox DA5 and a Toneworks Pandora PX4 w/headphones so I don't know how they would sound live on stage with bigger amps, but I'm totally happy, finally.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:

      This pickup is a rad bad-ass mofo pickup, in the bridge...I mainly play blues, punk and metal and it does all those and some with finesse...For metal it has alot of balls and sounds very meaty yet, yet cuts above the bass on the higher strings...worth the ammount I paid for it...I got it installed in a cheap Epiphone Les Paul Junior with Grover Tuners, which I added to it, and it's the best thing I've played...High Five to Larry Dimarzio...
