I'm pretty sure he uses Super Distortions in the neck as well. That's what he's got on his Gibson signature LP.

I don't know about a Super Distortion in the neck, you may want something different and lower powered there, like a PAF Pro.

TBH, though, if you're still using that Spider in your sig, I wouldn't expect to hear much of a difference with a pickup swap. Don't make the swap - save up, upgrade your amp. Pickups are a smaller part of your tone than you think, and would only really shine through a good amp.

They make your tone a little less hot, but otherwise the difference isn't significant.

Do Dimarzio still make the super distortion pickup commercially? I've seen it on signature guitars these days, but never in a sense that I could just buy the pickup.

Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)
Backup: Vintage AV1
