PAF Pro Review
« on: March 02, 2024, 01:41:43 AM »
Hi,
I posted a fresh dimarzio review, but could be good action for forum :) It's about PAF Pro as a neck humbucker, a gem from Dimarzio. Hope you like it.

I could be wrong, but seem to recall that originally the PP was developed for Jazz/Rock guitarist Bill Connors.  Connors played with all the fusion heavy weights, such as Return to Forever, during the 70's usually using a Les Paul Custom.  But during the 80's he started using Charvels. He had a brown sunburst single Hum Charvel strat, with a vintage style trem, and ebony finger board. He needed a pickup which could drive through a lot of processing, but still retain clarity and pure harmonics.

I haven't heard him and his relation with PP but i've been checking the videos you'd sent and he is hell of a player. Such a music.

Buddy, seriouesly what he had done in the 1984 was awesome. I need to listen the whole album. Very impressive.

That is correct - that was mentioned in one of the 80s catalogues.

Nice review.  Always wanted to try a Super Distortion and wondering what to put in the neck of my HH Ibanez, found the answer.

Those catalogs... Finding them was hard to me but now it gets more difficult. We (dimarzio fans or users whatever) should scan what we got sometime...
