OVERVIEW

Created for Steve Vai.

Designed for maximum impact and power-to get a tight, aggressive, loud sound. It incorporates a patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Works in almost all solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies as well. Though specifically created for Steve Vai's Ibanez Jems, it can add a lot of punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars. Makes the lowest notes jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

FEATURES
  • Tight, aggressive, loud sound
  • Dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones
  • Created specifically for Ibanez Jems
  • Adds more punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars

SPECIFICATIONS

DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup

    Exactly what my LP Studio needed!

      Comments about DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup:

      I bought the DP159 Bridge PU first and later added the DP 158. My LP Studio is a good piece of wood with a great finish, so I decided to trick it out with all the trimmings. This guitar holds its tuning better than any guitar I own, so I decided to upgrade it to performance standards. The, original pickups (490R and 490T) were noisy and muddy. After tons of research and considering style (Hard/Progressive Rock) , preferred strings (heavy), amp (high gain tube), effects, etc., the Evolution set won out. I am extremely pleased with the responsiveness of the volume and tone knobs on the guitar after replacement. Before, it was minimal at best. The EVO's also rid the guitar of noise (hiss and hum), something I've fought with since owning the guitar, and another reason for not using it on stage. These are VERY CLEAN high output pickups and exactly what I needed to make the guitar stage worthy.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup:

        Sounds great and matches the power of the bridge version. It's not as wild as the bridge, but it gives a reliable alternative tone when working with effects, so you are not switching pedals for different pickups.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup:

          I replaced my stock pickups in my main Ibanez with the Evo bridge and neck pickups and it is louder! Improved overall sound quality and tones I get out of it. Very versatile in playing styles, it's very crisp and clear, every little mistake can be heard with these. I definitely recommend them, gonna order another set later this month for my back up Ibanez.

            There's a few go to neck pick ups for me & this is one.It's articulate yet smooth. It's the perfect companion to the EVO middle & bridge. This set gives you the best of all worlds. From aggressive bridge output to chimey cleans & Trower single coil tones to the smooth, clear neck pickup that splits well & gives you a convincing bell like neck/middle strat tone. I highly recommend this pickup (the entire set too)

                Great Pickup!

                from Spartanburg, SC

                Comments about DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup:

                Very nice sounds and I am really impressed with the tone that this pup puts out. This thing was put into an old Ibanez GIO GRX20 guitar because I wanted to HOTROD it. I am running it in standard series mode for more output. The tones are still very clean in series mode but with a little added bass boost that blends nicely! ...I also paired this pickup with the Dimarzio Evolution Bridge pup.You can really play any style of music that you want...blues tones are easily achieved with this bad boy as well as sweet solos. Believe me, my lil' Gio is now my favorite guitar. (Thinking about putting these in my Ibanez ART 300 or my Schecter Damien!) FYI -You can get really nice aggressive tones with both Evolution pickups when you use the DR Dimebag 10-52 strings.You'll love this pickup!

                I have this in the neck of my John Petrucci musicman in combination with a steve's special in the bridge. The evolution is one of the best pickups I own. Very clear and articulate. If have you a basswood guitar its perfect. My only complaint is that it is a tad expensive.

                THE best pickups I own!!!

                Comments about DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup:

                I own the bridge pick up as well and I put these in my Ibanez Gio. This pickup is NOT for the beginner!!! I haven't been playing guitar for very long and this pup is just WAY sensitive to any and every movement along the neck and pickup area. It's crystal clear tones and surgical like precision is breathtaking! These pups are so clear, clean and precise...I wish I wouldn't have bought them. If you're an accomplished guitarist looking for the sweetest distortion sound you could ever hear...buy these...you'll love them!!!!

                I just bought a set of these and they scream. I have them in an LTD MH-50 beecause the original pick ups were trash. The difference is huge! I play a lot of stuff with high gain and high distortion through a Peavey Rage 158. If you are looking for a new set of pick ups these will not dissapoint.
