DiMarzio Bridge Pickups for early Sunbursts and Standards


Recommended Posts

Who can help? What standard DiMarzio or Duncan Pickup comes closest to the end 70s/ early 80s cream  colored Hamer Bridge Pickups? I love how they sound and think about to swap the JB on a 90s Special. Thanks!

Try to find an older, 1980's or if you are lucky 1970's, Dimarzio DP103 PAF. They are almost identical to what was in the early Hamer's.

Here is a great looking set:

Have @JGravelinbuild you one. It’ll be the closest you can get without sourcing an OEM/stock pickup from a 70’s/80’s Hamer.

100%. Josh built a set for me and they're perfect.

Any suggestions for an off the shelf model?

 

 I’m in the same position as the OP.  The Air Classic,  PAF Master, PAF 59, and the 36th Anniversary all are in the area.  I don’t know the details of how they differ though.

Back when the 36 anni's were still relatively new I saw many favorable comparisons here between them and the original Dimarzio PAF's used by Hamer in the 70s/80s guitars.  I have no first hand experience but saw it repeated often enough that for something off the shelf the 36s would be my first go.
