OVERVIEW

Vintage just got better.

One variation that's highly sought after by vintage PAF players is a pickup that is quiet, bright, and very dynamic. The PAF Master Neck Model is truly special. It has a great balance of full, richness with a throaty tone but its not too fat and notes still come through nice and clear, with beautiful smooth and creamy highs. DiMarzio gave it just the right amount of windings to allow the pickup to sing, sustain and still be articulate.

Recommended for neck. Can also be used in bridge position.

Tech Talk
DiMarzio has done the research and seen all the mythology around pickups made with NOS wire, unoriented magnets, butyrate bobbins, vintage alloys, unbalanced coils, et al. They prefer to focus on results rather than on replicas. The PAF Master Neck Model uses several of our patented ideas to create a pickup that pays tribute to the original sound without imitating it. Instead of accidentally unbalancing the coils, they tuned them to different frequencies to get the same effect without compromising hum-cancellation.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP260 PAF Master Humbucker Neck Pickup:

    A great compliment to the PAF Master bridge. I was surprised how tight it was for a neck pickup. Most neck pickups are really fat sounding (yes it's also a function of where it's placed along the string), which is what it's suppose to do, but this pickup, though it's still a warmer tone than the bridge, it almost as tight as the neck. With the way I play (usually only use my neck alone for leads or in combo with my bridge for more funky cleans), it suites my tonal tastes. Best of all, it still retains string/note clarity even when hitting chords, sweep picking, and shredding through really fast alternate picking.
