The DiMarzio DP223 PAF Humbucker Pickup uses new technology to duplicate the qualities of vintage pickups--without sacrificing their presence and open sound. This PAF Bridge Model is a hotter version of the PAF.
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. Some of the old pickups had a lot of wire on the coils, which created more power and a warmer tone.
Not just for set-neck 24-3/4" scale guitars, the DiMarzio DP223 PAF is also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped electric guitars with bolt-on necks.

Comments about DiMarzio DP223 PAF Bridge Vintage Bobbins Humbucker 36th Anniversary Guitar Pickup:
Dropped this into the bridge position of a 2001 Les Paul 1960 Classic. The guitar had some great hot SD"s when I bought it and it sounded ok. Definately set up to rock. My problem was that I have a rather large herd of guitars (from Gretches to Biches) and quite a few of them are set up to rock out. I wanted the 1960 Classic to be as close to a 60's vintage sound as I could get it to be. DiMarzio DP223 in the bridge with a .022 Sprague Hyrel paper in oil capacitor, DiMarzio DP 103 in the neck position with a 0.15 Sprague Hyrel paper in oil capacitor. Voila a fantastic woodsy vintage sound for sure. The pickups are not as hot as they were but that was the whole purpose. For those wanting a vintage sound give the 223 and 103 combination a try, they are great with the Sprague pio caps. Definately turned the guitar around!
Although the features might only be what color you want these rock
Top shelf as always from DiMarzio!
Free would be better but oh well!
