Re: PAF-pro bridge
Just used my PGM300RE at band rehearsal last night -- it has a PAF pro bridge and neck pickup. Yes, it has a GREAT tone,,,,just sings. I have other Ibanez with Breeds, evolutions, tones zones........I really like them all. The PAf PRO has a noticable "mid range" thing going on,,,with a lot of clarity and "sing". It is fairly unique, and I really enjoy it. It has the sing and sustain of the higher output pickups, with this sort of almost cleaner sound with a mid rang-ey tone. Great harmonics and touch response, and almost a wah pedal on kind of tone. Think "Summer Song." Really cool,,,,,like a Satriani kinda vibe. Almost sounds like....well, your wah is engaged a bit when it really isn't, and chords are sort of jangly and cleaner under higher gain settings. Doesn't lack sustain though. I really can't pick a favorite Dimarzio, as they all have something about them that I really enjoy. The Evolution, for example, has these really cool overtones, and the tone zone kinda does that with a darker sound. The breed is a bit more sterile to me, yet is really full and round sounding. My amp is a Soldano SLO, and so I really notice every nuance of the different pickups. And yes,,,the PGM is basswood, and I'd recommend the pickup highly.
