Paul Gilbert guitar gear - Dimarzio Pickups 1992

In 1992 Paul Gilbert made a guitar gear video with Dimarzio pickups giving demos of how they sound and why he loves them.

We get a look at Paul Gilbert's home and personal collection of guitars. Paul Gilbert is playing a Ibanez RG series guitar, customised decoration with stickers. The guitar is fitted with Dimarzio PAF Pro humbucker pickups and the neck and the bridge. The pickups tone is clear and chunky with a punch, ideal for soloing and rhythm play. Paul Gilbert describes different pickups and pickup positions as effecting the sound much like a Wah Wah pedal where the tone can be high or low, thick or thin, and stopping it in a certain position.

The guitar also has a single coil in the middle for cleaner tones, when he combines the middle and bridge pickup the guitar sounds amazing giving a twangy hendrix tone, everyone loves this tone that Jimi Hendrix made famous, and is easily achieved with this setup of Dimarzios.

Paul Gilberts favourite pickup however is the Dimarzio ToneZone, he decribes it as giving that bit more Eq and being less fuzzy.
