This set includes the DP260 PAF Master Neck pickup and the DP261 PAF Master Bridge pickup in one matched set. The PAF Master Pickups: vintage just got better.
The DiMarzio DP260 PAF Master Neck Model is truly special. It has a great balance of full, richness with a throaty tone but it's not too fat and notes still come through nice and clear, with beautiful smooth and creamy highs. One variation that's highly sought after by vintage PAF players is a pickup that is quiet, bright, and very dynamic. DiMarzio gave it just the right amount of windings to allow the pickup to sing, sustain and still be articulate.
The DiMarzio DP261 PAF Master Bridge Model has all that combined with real rock and roll character. It reacts to playing, and sounds good when playing more than one note at the same time. Picked hard, it has a beautiful, snarly, thick, rockin’ tone.
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. DiMarzio prefers to focus on results rather than on replicas. The PAF Master pickups use several of their patented ideas to create a pickup that pays tribute to the original sound without imitating it. Instead of "accidentally" unbalancing the coils, they've tuned them to different frequencies to get the same effect without compromising hum-cancellation.
