Rick Derringer pickups description from Steve Blucher
« on: July 07, 2024, 10:48:43 PM »
I wrote DiMarzio a few years ago, asking what the Rick Derringer Signature pickups sound like.

Steve's reply:
1)      The bridge model (DP204) resembles the Steve' Special, although it is a little brighter-sounding and not quite as loud.

 2)      The neck model (DP203) is fairly comparable to the Air Classic (DP190) in terms of output and overall sound.
