From DiMarzio: "The PAF 59 is DiMarzio's version of the orginal and legendary 'Patent Applied For' humbucker pickup created in 1955. 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 2-½-inch degaussed Alnico 5 magnet. The 42 AWG enamel wire coils are un-dipped and scatter wound. They are tuned to capture the guitar's voice and dynamics without coloring it.


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."
