Price paid: C$ 80
Purchased from: Private sale
Sound: The DiMarzio BluesBucker
use it on a clean sound Peavey Transtube, reverb, nothing else.
Fat tone...alot of bass and mid. Not muddy on overdrive.
Best for neck position, hot coil facing neck.
Designed for split coil action, although I wired mine to act as single signal. Gorgeous, full sound! // 10
Reliability & Durability: Seems reliable enough for me. No issues as of yet, and this pup was previously wired into two other guitars. Came with heavy duty wire casing to hold the four wires coming out of it. Well wrapped. Doesn't look like much, but who cares. It's plastic frame was too small for my Epi pickup holes, but it fit ok into the Epi pup frame. // 10
Overall Impression: Love the power it delivers and the bluesy tones. It buried my factory bridge pup (Epiphone stock alnico) as far as sound and power. Doesn't have much response when playng with tone pot, but it's enough treble to carry its own tones. I have it in Neck position, hot coil facing neck. As far as its comparison to a P90, I don't know..I wired mine so that the coils wouldn't split. (my axe has no phase selection) I put it into an Epiphone Dot. Very happy. I had to replace my Stock Dot bridge pup, because it suddenly paled in comparison to the BB. Have the BB almost flush with the guitar body... Very high output! // 10
