Help identifying Dimarzio 'S1' pickup


Just got a nice used S540FM from Ishibashi

Anyone in Europe who doesnt use em should check out their U-box

Even with the duty and customs its so much cheaper than e*y or any other source for nice Japanese guitars

My new 'S' has Dimarzios fitted - a pink Paf Pro in the neck

But the back of the Bridge pickup says 'Dimarzio' Made in USA S 1

What is a Dimarzio S1 - is this a Super Distortion?

Answering my own post

Sez Dimarzio tech

The S1 is our PAF Pro with chrome polepieces. No other difference.
