From the manufacturer:

Here are the characteristics that make a great vintage humbucker: a soft magnetic field, sweet tone, perfect balance between warmth and clarity, the ability to go from clean to distorted by pick attack alone. For DiMarzio's PAF 36th Anniversary Bridge they wanted to continue in the path of pioneers such as Seth Lover (designer of the original Patent Applied For humbucker) and create pickups that combine all of the characteristics of great vintage humbuckers. These pickups are not merely clones. They re-engineered the PAF using their patented technology and Larry DiMarzio_'s own 1959 cherry sunburst Gibson Les Paul as the reference. Larry_'s Gibson Les Paul has a uniquely amazing sound and it_'s not only due to the pickups _- it_'s the total fusion of many elements of the guitar itself. Although the pickups have a weak magnetic field, the sound is well defined _- almost like a single-coil. DiMarzio duplicated the weaker magnetic field in order to allow the strings to vibrate longer, as well as focus and articulate the attack and output. They use computer-controlled winders to consistently layer the 42-gauge custom-coated wire, achieving the exact desired frequency response. Then it_'s dipped in their custom formula to eliminate squeal and microphonics. The PAF 36th Anniversary Neck is smooth but not muddy. It performs equally well in the neck or bridge, just as the best humbuckers from the 50s did.

Available here with a matte black cover.
