I installed the DP223 PAF 36th Anniversary weeks ago on a Les Paul type guitar. See opinion on the DP103.
What I like most about him is his balance, its capacity to recreate every nuance of the game, its characters vintage, and versatility.

Before installing, I tried this guitar on a SH2b SEYMOUR DUNCAN JAZZ, an SH4 Jeff Beck and Steve Stevens DIMARZIO. Trs are all well but are not as good as DP223 for my use. The Jazz has a nice grain, a little roots in saturation and dynamics. But, as his version Neck, I think it still provides a "peak" the attack is boring and less possde low (and more acute). The Jeff Beck too saturated and does not sound quite got my vintage (I'm on an alder guitar suits me well for the TRS-art). The DP161 is gnial for one hour. It is a super equilibrated potato, harmonics, sounds the wood better than the two previous ones. But then you get bored with. It is too smooth, too easy and frustrating when you quickly plugs directly into the amp with a little rverb for an explanation ...

The DP223 suits me much better. It sounds vintage. He transcribed all the nuances of the game, helping to ragissant mdiator and letting trs grate well with the volume like the DP103 (see review DP103). It saturates easily but not too much more than the DP103, however. It is dense, dynamic, smooth or sharp as the attack. Him in returning really gives a total saturation of the amplifier, then you can return a crunch sustained relchant a little wrist. In fact, the sound is open and offers a rev range of important dynamic. It is expressive and trs MRIT it. Those who, like me, think that certainly, Angus is not the greatest virtuosos (in size, (wharf!)), But he can make a solo sound like no other, just by playing on attack, intrt will include a microphone as the DP223.

By clean, I will not comment, I always play to the serious or intermdiaire. In split, it has no useful according to my usage, in the middle position with the serious Splitt too. This gives a well Tees nickel to make casseroles. This does not apply to simple strat. Srement, but it helps get a simple sound pickups out of phase crdible.
The sustain of the guitar is better with the DP103 and DP223, with the duo and SH2n SH2B/SH4/Steve Stevens.
I bought it on the net to OCCAZ version states "worn nickel" (wholesale antique nickel cover) for 60USD. So I think the report is qualitprix trs good.
I would do this choice because it marries perfectly with the DP103 and that rpond my expectations by sounding authentic and by promoting the expression.
Apart from the riffs of the Apocalypse, the humbucker can do anything to APRS me if you have the gear and technology. Nanmoins in terms of double open-sounding vintage, the choice is on the march plthorique
