    Or full double cream! Haven't looked at DiMarzio's trademark, but I bet it doesn't cover non-traditional bobbins with staple-looking pole pieces instead of screws and slugs

    Back in 2005 my friends band and mine were playing at a Christmas block party at someones girlfriends house. Her dad had a pink partscaster with a floyd and single PATB-2 and my buddy played it for their set. It sounded awesome and the lone experience i have with a PATB, but makes me want to get a PATB-3 for myself as i like my bridge pickups in the 10k range.

    You all were right. The bridge measures 57.5 mm outside pole to outside pole, while the neck measures 54 mm.

    We are truly overdue for some new PA-based designs.

    In some ways, that's why it was such a shame that people poo'd all over the Fuglybuckers! The PA tech gets used so infrequently. I mean, the Crazy 8 was the first new PA design in 20 years!

    Basically, anything "new" using the PA has moved into Custom Shop territory, making it inaccessible to the average player.

    I think a PA Strat set and/or a PA Tele set would be cool

    Maybe this was asked earlier, but has anybody ever made a hybrid with a PATB and a regular coil? There's a damaged PATB up on eBay that I'm thinking of combining with a Custom.

    That could be cool. You'd effectively have a Fuglybucker variant.
