Jem 77FP Pick Ups..Pink or Orange???

Hi all,

Does anybody know if the PAF Pro pick ups used on the 77 FP's have had their manufacturing process changed over the years?

I first bought one back in '91 and remember it having very matt pink coloured pickups that matched the pink of the tone and volume knobs.

Nowadays a lot of the ones i see still have the same colour tone/volume knobs, but the pick-ups almost appear to be a shiny orange in colour.

I appreciate that different light levels can play tricks, but i though it would 'trick' all the pink components not just the pick ups.

Take a look at some of the pics in the gallery tab and you'll see what i mean.

Yes, they have changed the manufacturing process and the colour is different from the early ones.

Oh i see, thanks for that.

Just bought another one (my third in 19 years) and got a bit concerned when i was looking at the pics (not arrived yet).
Also, had a look at the one i sold back in 2003 and that was the same...Panic over :-)

They changed it around the early 90's. The new pink DiMarzios you buy now will still turn orange. Not AS orange I believe, but still orange.

The knobs are coloured by a different method, as is the cover over the single coil, so they start off slightly different (though very similar) shades and change to a lesser degree.

You mean if I wanted orange DiMarzio's all I have to do is wait 20 years for the pink ones to change??? LOL! Now that the PGM200 is back with me (my friend who bought it to help raise cash for another friend down on his luck traded it back for a JCustom I had), the pups were changed to nice and wonderful new pink DiMarzio's.

Lol, I think the DiMarzio custom shop churns out the occasional orange humbucker. They do take orders, but a direct answer would be yes! Only they go a nasty browny orange; looks cool on a 20 year old FP, but apart from that...
