All I know is that Dimarzio makes a good PAF pickup, but the Dimarzio PAF Pro is no totally a PAf

Re: DiMarzio Classic PAF Vs Gibson BurstBuckers II

I just replaced pickups in my R9. Originally the guitar had classic 57's (which I like very much), but after playing a real 58 side by side with my R9, the pickups didn't have that smooth bite that the real PAF's had. Anyway, I put a BB 2 in the bridge, and a BB 1 in the neck. I got a little closer to the original PAF sound, but I wasn't quite overjoyed. Don't get me wrong, the guitar sounded good with the classic 57's and the BB, but I didn't like the squeel that I get with the un-potted BB's. Anyway, I did a little research, and I got the Dimarzio 36th aniv PAF's (DP223 for bridge and DP 103 for neck). Also, I got a killer deal on them. In my shopping I found a place called Woodwind and Brasswind (wwbw.com). Their prices were on par with everyone else, but they had a 20% off sale,(the discounted price) and free shipping over 100.00! Anyway, I think my total came to 127.00 for both shipped. BTW, I got the cream open coils. I used Dimarzios in my Les Paul's in the 70's, mainly because I thought they looked cool!! Anyway, the open cream coils look great in my R9, but I do like them better than the BB's I had. They don't squeel as much, and they have a nice warm tone, with the PAF bite I like. Anyway, I have only lived with the Dimarzio PAF's for about a month now, but at this point, I really like them. Also, I play heavy blues, classic rock, and some 80's metal through a Mesa MK IV. Anyway, I hope this helps.

I think he talking about feedback. I am sure BB's I, II and III are unpotted, so there would be a tendency for them to feed back if you are to close to a cranked amp.

Gibson Burstbucker 1 2 & 3 are all unpotted when purchased as aftermarket products.
In guitars they come potted.
