DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Guitar Pickup
The PAF Pro® was created when chops-intensive playing was first starting to happen, and high-gain amps and rack systems were becoming popular. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and “cut” with an open-sounding PAF® vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro® slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the mid-range that gives the pickup a subtle “aw” vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked to produce highs that stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro® makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it’s an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn’t required.
WHY SO CHEAP?
This pickup has unfortunately been subjected to damp - not submerged but it's been in a damp environment. It is however fully working, the DC resistance measures xxxxx which shows that the windings are in good condition. These are copper anyway so relatively unaffected by damp. The external look of the pickup is good, a little discolouration and a bit of rust on two of the seven pole pieces. We cleaned these up with WD40 so the look of the pickup is quite reasonable. The packaging / box is also a little shoddy but who cares about that once the pickup is fitted and working - it's going in the bin!!
As always, your statutory rights are unaffected as for any other purchase. If for any reason it doesn't work, send it back and we'll give you a full refund.
