DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup F Spaced in Violet


Designed with one of the most influential and demanding players in the modern guitar world Steve Vai, the DiMarzio Evolution pickups are designed to be as punchy and loud as possible especially the neck pickup which focuses on creating a flat response so every single frequency can through even the densest of mixes either live or in the studio. With these pickups being designed with Steve Vai and his signature Ibanez guitars thats what they were made for but chuck these into any solid body guitar and you will immediately feel the heat.

Here's what DiMarzio say about the Evolution Neck Pickup

Evolution Neck

The Evolution Neck and Bridge humbuckers are the result of two years of research to come up with the right sound for a very demanding player: Steve Vai and his Ibanez Jems. Both pickups are designed for maximum impact and power. The neck pickup is fat, punchy and loud. The bridge pickup is tight, aggressive and louder. Both pickups have our patented dual-resonance configuration to reproduce more harmonic overtones than conventional humbuckers. Evolution pickups are not polite-sounding, and they're not for the inexperienced, but - if you've got the chops and a hot amp - your sound will burn. The Evolution pickups were originally designed with live gigs in mind, but they have so much presence and definition that they're great recording pickups, too; they slice right through even the densest mix.

Recommended For

The Evolution neck model will work in almost all solid-bodies and most semi-hollow bodies as well.

Tech Talk

Obviously, the Evolution was designed for Steve's Ibanez Jems, but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Gibson Les Pauls and similar set-neck guitars - even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.
