Yeah. Why a Dimarzio? If you want something that sounds like a JB, buy a JB.

Any particular reason you want a dimarzio or are you just a fanboy?

Can we not insult the ts right out of the gate?


on topic:
Why do you want a Dimarzio if you want the sound of a JB? If you want the JB sound the logical thing would be to get the JB.
It would be easier to suggest you pickups if we knew what tones you are trying to achieve, what gear you have etc.

No it's going in an ibanez prestige 2570e VDG and it has the pickups on the guitar say Dimarzio/Ibz on then.....so a seymour duncan pick just wouldn't work for me.....

so you are saying that you just want the pickups to match aesthetically?

Super Distortion IMO. But IMO SD (passives) are only ok, Dimarzio is the best passive pup company IMO. Now SD Blackouts are AMAZING! but not a fan of their passive. But here's how to figure it out. On SD's site there is the "tone wizard" use it to find out what options made the JB come out in the option bar (btw i think its mahogany and rosewood). The take those options, put them in Dimarzio's pup finder and you should be able o figure it out. But off the top of my head I wana say the Super Distortion...

In something like that where your gonna replace one pup in a HSH that are IBZ/Dimarzio design pups, replace them all... just one will throw the sound off.

The other pickups are fantastic.....the bridge is just not very hot.

You two need to think about what you're saying.

One magnet with a load of wire wrapped round it is not going to throw a shit fit and spontaneously combust if you put another magnet with a load of wire wrapped around it that happens to have a different name stamped on the plastic next to it.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

In my experience just replacing one pup in an hsh guitar kinda sounded a little odd... but thats my experience.

you can put in any passive pickup into your guitar doesn't need to be from a specific brand.

Lol....ya think.......I asked a question.....

Depends how well you match outputs and such, like putting a 20K megasuperhumbuckerofdeath in something that came with PAF clones would sound a bit mismatched, but if you stick within the general area of what the other pickups are aimed at but buy something that does it better you should be fine. Obviously it'll sound better than the other pickups if all of them are sub-par, but all three pickups will sound different to some degree anyway so it shouldn't be too noticeable.

If you really want Dimarzio than look into the Super Distortion, Super 3 and Crunch Lab. You can listen to clips on the Dimarzio site to give you a better idea.

People do it ya, I didnt like the tone after I did it doesnt mean Im under informed. Now I looked on dimarzio's site and the SD site... The Super Distortion should work for the sound you are looking for.

If you don't want dumb shit answers, don't ask dumb shit questions. Quite apart from the fact that you're yet to provide a decent reason why you will only buy a DiMarzio, you asked for their version of a pickup that's average at best.

Holy crap why should it matter to U what or why I wanna buy it....I simply asked for a comparable dimaraio to a duncan JB.....that's it nothing else. I'm on a phone so right now the tone wizard is a little iffy....

Cool guitar!

Have you tried raising the bridge pup it closer to the strings? You might E-Mail DiMarzio and ask them what pickup they rec' that will be hotter than the stock bridge pickup but still balance well with the other two stock ones. They are pretty good customer service wise.

I would say a Super 2. A little hotter than a JB and with a Ceramic magnet instead of Alnico 5.

And DiMarzio are great pickups. Love 'em. Also, this thread is so full of lulz and phail ;D eez phunneh.

I would just throw in a Crunch Lab or a Tone Zone.

Before this info, your unrelenting preference for Dimarzio seemed nonsensical. Now it makes sense.

Besides that, Duncan uses square feet, and the guitar is fairly obviously not gonna have them fit because of the Dimarzio's smaller triangle feet.


Anyway, closest one? Um... I dunno. Maybe a Tone Zone?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
