DiMarzio DP274CR PAF 59 Electric Guitar Pickup

Drop this humbucker into any guitar to transform it into a bona fide tone machine. Based on pickups from a '59 Les Paul, these pups are a PAF lover's dream.

These days, it seems as if everyone's looking for the legendary sound and dynamics of the original "Patent Applied For" pickups. Utilizing Larry DiMarzio's 1959 Cherry Sunburst Les Paul for reference, DiMarzio used the same materials as 1959, gifted ears, and decades of winding experience to create the new PAF 59 pickups.

Larry says the PAF 59 Neck and Bridge models were built following an "old family recipe." We started with a 2-1/2-inch degaussed Alnico 5 magnet. The 42 AWG enamel wire coils are un-dipped and scatter wound. They're tuned to capture the guitar's voice and dynamics without coloring it.

The PAF 59 Neck and Bridge models feature Double Cream butyrate bobbins on our long-leg nickel/silver base plate just like the originals.

All materials are made in the U.S.A. to the tolerances of the best of the 1959 pickups.
The PAF 59 Neck and Bridge models have the open dynamics, bright attack, smooth midrange, and rich bottom end, along with the creamy distortion of the original "Patent Applied For" pickups.

The PAF 59 Neck model is very responsive, and harmonics leap out. Combined with the PAF 59 Bridge model, it's got that smooth, overdriven, classic arena rock sound.
