DiMarzio PAF Joe Humbucker Pickup - Black
In Stock!

The pros choose DiMarzio!

DiMarzio's PAF Joe neck-position humbucker developed specifically for Joe Satriani. Joe was seeking a pickup that took the best bits of the PAF Pro and merged them with Joe's favorite parts of the classic late-'50s humbucker. The resulting pickup was described by Joe as being "tubular" - low notes are articulated more clearly and high notes have a rounder tone. This combination of characteristics means the PAF Joe performs equally well on chords and single notes.The PAF Joe is steeped in classic tone with modern touches!

One of the best pickups ever made

This pickup continues to amaze me. I use it in the neck position of several guitars both solid body and semi hollow. I doesn't just work for a lot of stuff, it works really really well for almost anything. The last guitar I installed it on I wired it to coil split. The single coil mode is incredible. Cleans, crunch or high gain, this pickup does them all and does them well. In the neck position it retains the flute like quality that is often wanted from a neck humbucker. It responds amazingly well to volume and tone control variations and is very sensitive to pick attack. My primary rig is a Mesa Mark V with mesa cab. I push the front end with a boost and use some pedal in the loop. The 12 adjustable pole pieces can be set to really balance the output across all strings. The only drawback is that Sweetwater only carries these in black, which is a huge shame because DiMarzio has almost every color and cover variety there is.
