A couple of errors I noticed:

Strat Single coils: No flange or different magnet stagger are $10 List each.
Camo bobbins add $30 List
Gold or Chrome Tops Add $75 list
Gold, chrome or Nickel cover on PAF style pickups: $23
Worn cover: $33
Colours on humbuckers: $10 regardless of the combination
Different colours on Strat pickups, no charge except Camo, $20
Reverse Polarity, where available is no charge.

According to DiMarzio's list prices, yes.

But according to actual sale prices (in the U.S. at least), these prices are wrong.

And no, not regardless of color combos on humbuckers is there an upcharge. All pickups are available in double cream, double black, or zebra (one coil black, one coil cream) for no additional charge.

Thanks for maintaining the FAQ.



It's honestly not a problem. It's something that's cool and fun, and it serves a purpose.

And at the moment I'm pretty sure it's a bit more comprehensive than DiMarzio's FAQ.

UPDATES: I bolded all of the topic names, and added the AT1 humbucker as it is now an official production model and no longer a mystical special-special-special-SPECIAL order only pickup.

Well, quite honestly, who buys a Tele to put an Air Norton in it?

And here's something interesting: the Air Norton T isn't listed under DiMarzio's list of available pickups. At all. It never was.

Just read this, am I right in thinking there's no mention of the Chrome pickup covers? Would be nice to see which pickups come with these and how much the covers cost. Considering having covers on but depend how it affects tone and wether it's too expensive or not.

Go to DiMarzio's website and download their MSRP listings.

But from what I've seen, chrome and camo bobbins generally run around $120 USD.

Ohh BTW I think you should add that the custom JP neck pickup is has been changed to the Liquifire.
