I played a used Jackson today where the previous owner replaced the JB with a dimarzio of some sort.

I loved the sound of it but I'm not sure which dimarzio model it is. I looked all over the web but still am not sure. It was white with black pole pieces, the pole pieces were the allen wrench shape not the flathead screw shape.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm...hard saying since DiMarzio makes/has made so many models over the years.If it was all allen head poles then it could be any number of models like a super distortion or its siblings,a Steve's Special,a dual sound,a D-activator model,or who knows what else.Your best bet would be to get your hands on the guitar again and take the pup out of the body cavity and look to see if there's a model name or any specific info on its make printed somewhere on it.

it sounds like a super distortion or similar pickup, cause of the allen wrench pole pieces. What's the impedance on the pickup?

I am gonna buy the guitar anyway. It's a Jackson DK2s but the sustainer system wasn't working so GC is gonna send it in and have that repaired, so it will be a couple weeks before I get it.

I think it might be a D-Activator or a Super Distortion, it was pretty hot. Either way it sounded great. I'll pop it out after I purchase it and see what it is exactly. Thanks for the help.

Could be anything, the colour means nothing as all Dimarzios come in all colours and the any of the medium-hight output Dimarzios will sound hot becaue of the wide frequency response.

All you can really discount are the ones that have different polepieces like the Tone Zone or Norton.

^ Word.

DiMarzio's can be ordered in any color with silver, black or gold poles so it really can be just about any DiMarzio pup save for those with flat or screw headed poles.

Ok, I knew that most came in white, I didn't know you could get any pole piece colors you wanted though. thanks for the help.
