OVERVIEW

A versatile guitar part as specified by Satch.

Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combined the best qualities of the DiMarzio PAF Pro with those of a late '50s Gibson humbucker. Joe described this tone as being "tubular". Through the use of Virtual Vintage technology, clear-sounding low frequencies are blended with warm-sounding mids and high frequencies, which makes the PAF Joe equally good for chords and single notes. It was first used by Joe throughout the 2003 G3 tour. Recommended for all positions, solid, semi-solid and hollowbody electric guitars.

Tech Talk: What does "tubular" mean?
In this case, it means making low notes "speak" more clearly while giving high notes a rounder voicing. This accomplishes 2 goals: chords have better definition, and single notes at higher fret positions remain warm sounding rather than getting thinner. The PAF Joe has slightly less power than the PAF Pro does. It balances well with bridge pickups like the PAF Pro, Fred, Breed neck model, Air Norton, and Norton.


Go one better with PAF sound that soars. Order today!

I took my low end Ibanez GRX that plays great and put in the PAF Joe in the neck also with a MO'Joe in the bridge with parralel wiring. This combo automatically turned this guitar around. It sounds amazing and really expresses notes and chords, especially the low end strings up on the neck are clear. No muddyness, notes really come out and sing. I think I understand "tubular" now but if anything this makes my Crate solid state more Tubular. Can't wait to switch it to Coil-splitting and see what that does. If ya like a fat, warm, in your face, clear tone then go for this combo.

Great pickup/great price

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

Purchased this along with a Mo'Joe to replace stock pickups in my Ibanez RGT42DXFM. Needed something with enough bite to cut through the mahogany body, but didn't want a super-high output pickup. This pickup did the trick. Performs as advertised, I get a great sound clean/overdriven and individual notes remain clear across the fretboard.

PAF Joe is a go!!!!

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

I recently had this pickup installed in the neck position of my Ibanez S470( With an Evolution in the bridge position...) and this thing sounds straight lovely!!! It is nice and full bodied, but not to dark, and not at all muddy. My intention was to have the bright, sparkly Evolution in the bridge, and this in the neck, but now that I can hear them both in comparison, it makes the Evolution sound bright and dry. I my be putting one of these in my bridge position in the near future...

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

I had bought a used Ibanez s470 love the way the guitar played but man did it sound horrible with the stock pickups I used to play with nothing but EMGs. one day i decided i wanted to try something different so i was checking out pickups at my local guitar store and they had put on a joe satriani video well you get the picture i bought them and man did they blow me away. I would recommend these to every one

Gorgeous

By Quigley

from New Jersey

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

Before I got this pickup, I had only one functioning pickup in my SG style DeArmond guitar. I bought this to replace the cruddy broken stock neck position pickup and OH MAN does it kick BUM!! It is very good for clean playing and moderate distortion, but i prefer my dimarzio PAF Pro for heavy metal playing. Overall, you cannot go wrong with this if you wanna sound like Clapton, Stray Cats, or Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Holy humbucker Batman!

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

I put the DP213 "JOE" pickup in an Ibanez JS100 in the neck posistion and the difference from the original Ibanez pick-up is astonishing. More gain, more clarity, more definition, more JOE! I paired this with the new DP216 MO' JOE at the bridge and they made my JS100 everything I thought it could be.

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

I have Satch's 1st signature model from 1992 with this pickup in the bridge. it is 16 years old but it still ROCKS! This pickup screams, wails, crys, talks, everything! Harmonics are incredible on it! Especially with a Floyd-Rose or a Lo-Pro or an Edge tremolo. it is an INCREDIBLY VERSATILE pickup! BUY IT! You will not regret it!

Just got one

By Travis

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:

I just got a DP213 put into the neck position in my Epiphone Les Paul. It sounds really really good! The levels are perfect! Very good for hard rock or alternative music with a lot of distortion, but also pretty good for punk and funk stuff too. The ONLY thing I would say would be wrong with this is that it doesn't sound all that great when using a wah. I have a DP100 in the bridge of this same guitar and when using a wah, I switch to that one. Still an amazing pickup! I do not regret this purchase one bit!
