    Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For their PAF® 36th Anniversary Bridge DiMarzio wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover (designer of the original Patent Applied For humbucker) and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. These pickups are not merely clones. DiMarzio re-engineered the PAF® using their patented technology and Larry DiMarzio's own 1959 cherry sunburst Gibson® Les Paul® as the reference. Larry's Gibson® Les Paul® has a uniquely amazing sound and it's not only due to the pickups — it's the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field, the sound is well defined — almost like a single-coil. DiMarzio duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer, as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. They use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire, achieving the exact frequency response they want. Then it's dipped in their custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The cover is made from nickel-silver and the new plating makes it more magnetically transparent than the originals. The PAF® 36th Anniversary Bridge is hotter than the Neck. It is not only for set neck 24 3/4 inch scale guitars, but it's also an excellent bridge pickup for trem-equipped bolt-ons.

    Recommended For
    Bridge position, can also be used in neck position with higher output bridge models.

    The PAF® 36th Anniversary Bridge model has the best qualities of the Virtual PAF® bridge and Virtual Hot PAF® pickups and then some. It's as loud as the Virtual Hot PAF®, but has as much low-end and midrange definition as the Virtual PAF® Bridge Model. The highs are actually bigger and smoother than either model. The 4-conductor version also splits very well. Single-coil mode is bright, but not at all sterile-sounding.
