DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Pickup in White

F-Spaced Pick-Up Developed for Joe Satriani


The PAF Joe is the latest pickup designed with Joe Satriani. As a neck position humbucker, joe wanted a vintage "tubular" tone. Through the use of Virtual Vintage technology, Dimarzio have developed a tone with clear sounding low frequencies blended across the range with warm sounding mid and high frequencies. This makes the pickup versatile for both chords and single notes. 

If you're looking for the full, versatile and rounded tone similar to the likes of Joe Satriani, then the PAF Joe is a great bet.

Here's what Dimarzio say about the PAF Joe Pickup

The PAF Joe is the latest neck pickup we developed for Joe Satriani. Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combined the best qualities of the PAF Pro with those of a late 50s Gibson humbucker. Joe describes this tone as being "tubular". Through the use of Virtual Vintage technology, clear-sounding low frequencies are blended with warm-sounding mids and high frequencies, which makes the PAF Joe equally good for chords and single notes. Joe first used it throughout the 2003 G3 tour.

What does "tubular" mean- In this case, it means making low notes "speak" more clearly while giving high notes a rounder voicing. This accomplishes two goals: chords have better definition, and single notes at higher fret positions remain warm-sounding rather than getting thinner. The PAF Joe has slightly less power than the PAF Pro. It balances well with bridge pickups like the PAF Pro, FRED, The Breed Neck Model, Air Norton, and Norton.
