DiMarzio DP213F PAF Joe Pickup in Black F-Spacing


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.

Recommended For

All positions, solid, semi-solid and hollow-body electric guitars.

Tech Talk

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.
