OVERVIEW

DiMarzio's Super Distortion has been the industry standard since its introduction in the early 70s. The DP209 Super Distortion P-90 Humbucker Pickup is their highest-output humbucking "soapbar" replacement, and it gives players with guitars routed for P90-style pickups the ability to upgrade their pickups without any modification to the guitar. Like the original Super Distortion, it has 12 adjustable pole pieces and 4-conductor wiring for split and parallel humbucking modes.

Recommended For: Solid body guitars.

Tech Talk: Because of its slightly different coil architecture, the P-90 Super Distortion has a little smoother treble response than the original, which you'll hear mostly at the higher frets. Like the original Super Distortion, the P-90 version was intended primarily for use in the bridge position. It can also be used in the neck position, where you'll get the best results with most amplifier's clean or moderate-gain channels. Parallel and split wiring drop the volume and increase treble response, and these modes are equally useful in any position.

Before you route your Les Paul Deluxe...

Comments about DiMarzio DP209 Super Distortion P-90 Humbucker Pickup:

I have a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. The stock minihumbuckers are anemic. I put in P-90's, sound good, but the guitar is too heavy so they were a bit dark. Now I have P-90 Super Distortion and it is glorious especially if you like 70's and 80's rock. Similar to 498T but no Alnico V mud. Ceramic pickups are clear and tight but warm and thick. It is P-90 size but full size humbucker sound. Maybe slight honk compared to standard SD. Blah, blah, blah I'm real happy with it. Btw I got the P-90 Deluxe Plus Neck to match.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP209 Super Distortion P-90 Humbucker Pickup:

      I replaced the p90 pickup of my Les Paul Jr. with this pickup. I needed something with more oomph than the p90 had. This pickup did just that. Not only does it sound great distorted by it also sounds great clean. I had to do a little modifying to get the pickup to fit because my Junior originally had a dog ear p90. It sounds GREAT!!!

      Comments about DiMarzio DP209 Super Distortion P-90 Humbucker Pickup:

      Just installed a set of these in my Jaguar Modern player (no modifications required), I know some people said the Jaguar Modern Player is not the best guitar in the world, anyways........ I love the way it looks and the way it plays but I was not happy with the sound of the stock P-90´s so I decided to replace them with a better quality pickups. I love Dimarzio so I decided to try them. Basically this pickup is just the well known super distortion on a P-90 casing......... thats it, period. If you are expecting to get something different than the regular super distortion sound go try another pickup but, if you want to have the fire, warm and great sound from the super distortion in your P-90 routed guitar go for it, you won't be disappointed.
