The DiMarzio Ionizer 8 range were designed with the guitar mastermind from Animals as Leaders Tosin Abasi. When you play an 8 string you don't want it to produce too much low end otherwise you end up with a mess of a mushy mix especially when you introduce a bass guitar. DiMarzio and Tosin know this so the neck pickup has been designed to have a vintage and open sound, though with a ceramic magnet which helps give it the tightness needed when you take it into high gain territory.
Coil Splitting On An 8 String!
One of the things Tosin insisted on during development of this pickup is that it had to sound as good when you play it as a humbucker or when you play it as a single coil. If you have ever wanted an 8 string stratocaster now you can make it with this neck pickup. Although the pickup had to be adjusted to make sure the 7 and 8 string don't get muddy, you can still get incredible vintage strat-esque sounds with this in your guitar.
Here's what DiMarzio say about the Ionizer 8 String Neck Pickup
The Ionizer 8 Neck, Middle & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Tosin Abasi. Tosin is pushing the envelope with 8-string guitars. He needs lots of sounds, and he wants pickups that can make them all. It's taken us nearly two years to develop the pickup Tosin envisioned. It's warm and open like a vintage humbucker, solid and tight like a modern metal pickup, and performs like a classic single-coil in split mode.
It's unusual for a player to request a humbucker with the single-coil sound as important as the series humbucking sound, but Tosin was clear on this point. The split mode has lower resistance than a vintage Strat 6-string pickup to let the 7th & 8th strings stay clean, but all of the other specs nail the classic Strat sound.
