A versatile guitar part 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.
Tech Talk: 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.

Comments about DiMarzio DP213 PAF Joe Satriani Pickup:
1st of all, one might say that i could be a little bias since i am a major Satriani fan, But i am not. I purchase The Paf Joe and the Mo Joe together and to be frank the pickups are awesome. The only thing that i would wish for in these pickups is that the names of the pickups were visible somewhere on the front and fade resistant. This i would love cuz i would be able to show off. The Paf Joe & Mo Joe names on the pickups could be a good marketing idea for DIMARZIO.
