What's a DiMarzio P3??


I took some pickups out of a Yamaha 1221 and they were DiMarzio P3's (that's the imprint on the back)...
They also have an F imprinted, but logic tells me that the F means they are F-spaced.
Any idea on what the P3 means or what model they might be?
If they are a special made pickup for Yamaha, what are they most closely resembling? Paf Pros?

If they are like the 921s, they are closest to a Steve's Special. Check the coil resistance; they should be different. These are good pups; slightly scooped in the middle, very "clear" sounding, and they split very well when you use the stronger coil. At least, that's how they are in my 921 collection (I have 4 of them after just selling one; all alder bodied bolt ons).
