The DiMarzio® DP224 AT-1™ Andy Timmons Vintage Hot Humbucker is a PAF on steroids. The outstanding characteristics of the DiMarzio AT-1 are balance, warmth, and clarity. It achieves this blend with the same patented technology as the PAF® 36th Anniversary, but the sound is hotter and the focus is rock.
"A player's player" is a perfect description for Andy Timmons. He has great touch, phrasing, and tone. Since 2001, he has been playing a DiMarzio custom bridge humbucker that has only been available on his signature Ibanez® guitar, and it has been his first-line pickup ever since.
The DiMarzio AT-1 was originally designed for a 25-½" scale, mahogany-body guitar, but it adapts very well to other instruments. It has enough bass and mids to warm up brighter guitars, and enough clarity for 24-½" scale set-necks as well.
