Oh, this one I can answer!

I prefer the Evo, due to output
reasons and personal taste.

Hi There!

I haven't played another dimarzio in the neck... but I really like the PAF Pro there! It's clear, enough power, not muddy, very versatile! Playing with the volume is also really nice! Just listen to Satriani... you can hear the typically PAF Pro neck sound!

An Evolution Pickup is essentialy a juiced up PAF-pro as far as I know...just turn down the volume and tone on the guitar a bit and you've got yourself a PAF-pro.

Evo's have in my opinion a better tone definition. A paf has a more bluesy muddy tone.

Besides slightly rolled off highs and more output, to my ears the neck Evo is very close in tone to the PAF Pro.

I had both in the neck of my RG 550 and the both sound wonderful, but similar.

I like the way the amp responds to the higher output of the EVO over the PAF Pro, and as Texter said, roll the volume back(make sure you have a high-pass filter on it) and you basically have the same thing as a PAF Pro in there.

VERY versitile pickup, in my opinion.

I used the Evo int he bridge and the PAF in the neck of my Jem. I love the combination.

i have had 'standard' Jems with PAFs in both positions and Evos in both positions. I much prefer the PAF in the Neck and the Evo in the bridge.

The Paf in the Bridge didn't cut - it was too soft for me. The Evo in the neck was too biting for me.

Your mileage may vary
