Super-hot spice that won't get lost in the sauce.
The DiMarzio PAF Pro was created when chops-intensive playing was reaching high popularity, and high-gain amps and rack systems were the norm. A pickup was needed that combined a lot of presence and "cut" with an open-sounding PAF vibe. The transparency of its sound lets the PAF Pro slice through heavy processing, where darker-sounding pickups get lost in the mud of the effects chain. Low notes have both snap and chunk, and there is a spike in the midrange that gives the pickup a subtle "aw" vowel sound, like a wah-wah pedal stopped in the middle. Treble response is tweaked, so high notes stand out without getting brittle. The PAF Pro makes an outstanding neck pickup in almost any guitar, and it's an exceptional bridge pickup when high output isn't required.
The PAF Pro is a dependable choice right across the board -- neck and bridge positions, solidbody, semi-hollow and hollowbody guitars are equally effective uses.
This is a great building block pickup, because it's effective in many different situations. Try it in the neck position with a hotter bridge pickup - anything from a Norton to a Super Distortion will create a calibrated two-humbucker match. As a bridge pickup, it's really effective with single-coils, because it won't drown them out with too much power, and it's bright enough to blend in tone-wise.

Comments about DiMarzio DP151 PAF Pro Pickup:
DiMarzio did it again. With the several different versions of the PAF that they have put out, this is by far the most impressive of them all. The pickup itself mixes well with others (stock or brand name) and stands well on its own. I personally have one in the bridge position of my main guitar and was blown away by the sound. With the music that I play, it is it is important that when I kick into overdrive that you hear the crunch, but don't drown out the notes. With the PAF Pro I am able to dial in a nice dirty sound, but still retain that Gretsch hollowbody type clarity so that you actually hear the chord and not a wall of distortion. I was so impressed that I actually ordered two more for the neck and bridge positions on my backup guitar.
