      OVERVIEW

      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.

      Created for Steve Vai.

      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

      Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

      I bought the Evolution bridge pickup 15 years ago and put it in my 2000 Ibanez 570 and paired it with a PAFpro in the neck position. The evo sounds incredible but the PAF sounds like mud.I finally replaced it with the Dp150 evolution neck pickup and magic! it's like having two guitars in one. My only regret is that I waited so long.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

        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 BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

          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.

            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)

                  Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

                  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!!!

                  By R8:2 in Fresno

                  from Fresno, Ca

                  Comments about DiMarzio DP158 EVOLUTION NECK PICKUP BLACK AND WHITE REGULAR:

                  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!!!!
