DiMarzio Granted US Patent For New Cover Shape
« on: June 07, 2024, 07:17:07 PM »
Just saw this in my inbox. It's a patent for a P bass pickup covers but I think it's actually an interesting design.

DiMarzio, in collaboration with the legendary bassist Billy Sheehan, has invented a new shape and feel for Precision Bass® pickup covers that improves both playability and performance.

Using Billy’s vision for ramp-style surface shapes that minimized all the hard edges from the pickup casing, we've created a more comfortable playing experience. Taking this a step further, we relocated the height adjustment screws so that they are also below the surface of the pickguard, eliminating finger contact (see photo).

A by-product of our newly patented design is a shape that allows the twin hum-canceling coils to be adjusted closer to the strings. A secondary benefit from this is an improvement in both dynamics and string-to-string balance.

To celebrate our new patent, please enjoy 20% off the Relentless™ Middle, Relentless P™, Relentless PJ™ Pair, Sixties P™, and Sixties PJ™ Pair pickups for a limited time only. Use the code RELENTLESS20 at checkout on www.DiMarzio.com.
