Recommended for all positions, or bridge position with standard single coils in neck & middle.

Some players find the traditional Strat bridge pickup sound clear and sparkling, while others think it's almost painfully bright. You know who you are, and the FS-1 is for you. It's louder (about 25% more power) than a stock single-coil, and smoother and fatter-sounding all 'round. When you combine the FS-1 in the bridge with Class of '55s or Blue Velvet in the middle and neck, you'll have a guitar with calibrated, balanced tone in all five switch positions. For a bigger, more aggressive sound all around, you can also install FS-1 pickups in all three positions.

The FS-1 isn't designed with a vintage sound in mind, but if you're trying to get a blues sound from the bridge position of a maple-neck Strat, you'll be very happy with the extra mids and bass, and the sound still cleans up when the volume is rolled down.

    The Ramones Sound

    By Stig

    from NH

    Comments about DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup:

    If you want to re-create the Johnny Ramone sound, this is where you'd start. This is the pickup that he used in the bridge position of the famous white Mosrite that was his main guitar. The Seymour Duncan mini bucker at the neck was disconnected.

    Absolutely amazing

    Comments about DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup:

    In the 1970's, Larry DiMarzio designed the original DP110 FS-1 single coil pickup which was used for a short time by David Gilmour in the bridge position of his famous Black Stratocaster. While it didn't last long, it's an excellent pickup today for anyone looking for that 1960's kind of single coil tone in a Stratocaster body. I put them in all positions of a black Squier Strat and along with some new electronics, it went from being a junker guitar to sounding excellent.They sound good distorted, certain fuzz boxes make them sound really muddy though, I would avoid the use of a pedal like the Little Big Muff, I do want to try a Fuzz Face though. These are possibly the closest to the original pickups used in the famous Black Strat, if you want that kind of tone get yourself a set.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup:

    I have a Squier Standard Strat and, I really like it a lot but , I always noticed when I would try to use the bridge position only the sound was sharp and, way to harsh sounding. The other two pickups sounded fine so I thought a new pickup might be the cure. I have a 92 American Strat that I installed a Dimarzio Area loaded pickguard and, the improvement was exceptional !!!!! I got a really good deal on this DP110 so I installed it and, the harshness was gone, now I can go to the bridge position and, get that Fender single coil sound that I need. Dimarzio was a good choice on this guitar. Very easy install and, it fit perfectly.

    great pickup for hard rock in a strat

    Comments about DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup:

    I was searching high and low for a single coil to fit in my strat that was of higher quality then the factory ceramic that I had in it which was weak and tinny sounding. I was going to get a stacked humbucker for my strat but this pickup looked like a great deal and was easier to install since I know little about soldering. This pickup sounds like a mid range humbucker in my strat and can do hard rock or blues if desired I haven't tried metal with it but I think it could handle that too if desired. This is my first Dimarzio and it won't be my last cause its a great value but it does have some hum, nothing a noise gate won't fix.

        I have a super strat style guitar from the 80s and wanted a hotter neck pickup that still had the woody feel of an old style pickup. This did the job.

          I put these in a friend's strat to replace some miss-matched pickups. It's like a completely new guitar. I might not let him have it back.
