PAF DP103 Review

DiMarzio: PAF DP103
The pickup sounds great. It's in the neck of an all-mahogany Gibson Les Paul. It sounds similar to a Super Distortion, but a bit more balanced. It's exactly what I wanted.

Sound: The pickup sounds great. It's in the neck of an all-mahogany Gibson Les Paul. It sounds similar to a Super Distortion, but a bit more balanced. Not muddy at all. With the tone down to about 6, and a little reverb added on, it sounds similar to a good acoustic. It can get very clean, and with gain can go up to about Black Sabbath levels of gain. // 10

Reliability & Durability: It's a DiMarzio, so of course it's reliable and going to last. I'd say it's going to be a dependable pickup. // 10

Overall Impression: This is just a great sounding pickup. For what I was going for, it was a great replacement for the Seymour Duncan JB I had in the neck position. It's exactly what I wanted. // 10
