MC DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup
As specified by Satch.
Joe wanted a neck position humbucker that combined the best qualities of the DiMarzio® PAF Pro® with those of a late '50s Gibson humbucker. Joe described 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. It was first used by Joe throughout the 2003 G3 tour. Recommended for all positions, solid, semi-solid and hollowbody electric guitars.
What does ''tubular'' mean? In this case, it means making low notes ''speak'' more clearly while giving high notes a rounder voicing. This accomplishes 2 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® does. It balances well with bridge pickups like the PAF Pro®, Fred®, Breed® neck model, Air Norton®, and Norton®.
