The Pickup Place / Re: Help with pickup identification

Yeah. Doesn't look legit to me. I don't think I've ever seen a DiMarzio pickup with cables marked Dae Young.
Maybe they're just a Korean copy of a DiMarzio pickup for some cheap guitars.

The pole pieces are just part of the same design. If you look at the DiMarzio website under MINI when you look up pickups, you'll find the DP240-DP243 models. The first two have no poles showing the latter have one set of screw poles poking through the cover like a humbucker. They're the same size and you can retrofit any of those in your guitar.

The ones in your guitar are likely custom wound versions of the DP240 and DP241.

How old is the older one?

Also, do the pickups look any different from each other? I get this feeling you have a short in one of the coils.

Really depends. There are a lot of options but it sounds like you're looking for something more in the medium output range so maybe the Air Norton + Norton combo would do you well or maybe the Transition set.

Between the two, I'd go with the Gravity storm if you're looking for something more crunchy and percussive. The Evo2 can do it, but I like the Gravity Storm better. My deciding factor between the two pickups as they're very similar comes down to whether or not I plan on playing more lead or rhythm on that particular guitar. More lead stuff I'd go with the Evo2 since it can cut through the mix easier. More rhythm, Gravity Storm. In a band setting, where I havea singer I'd go with the Gravity Storm since I'd be playing rhythm 90+% of the time.

I forgot to mention but you can totally get it in purple. Although I personally love the black and purple mixed bobbins, which you can get but it would have to be a special order. Almost any dealer can do it or you can just order it directly from DiMarzio.

That does look rather interesting.

I'm actually tempted to try this myself!

Both the Evo and Evo2 would work fine in a mahogany bodied guitar. I've had them in some mahogany bodied Ibanez J-Customs before and they sounded fine. I'd go with the Evo2 or the Gravity Storm myself but that's me.

The Pickup Place / Re: Neck HB pickup to match a Tele Super Distortion T?

My first recommendation would be the Bluesbucker.

The Pickup Place / Re: What will match better with Air Norton?
« on: December 04, 2018, 03:28:59 pm »
The Air Norton would pair up fine with the Super Distortion. I've had good success with it in the past.

Don't worry we've all ripped apart our guitars for all sorts of reasons before.

Looking forward to seeing it!

The Pickup Place / Re: Hot Area T Sound for Strat!

The closest I can think of is probably a Chopper which would be kind of like a Area Hot T+

Sounds interesting. Got any pics of the final product?

Welcome to the forum!

I think you'll thoroughly enjoy the Super Distortion.

You'll be fine with Mahogany.

I can see that working pretty well actually.
