HumbuckerThe DiMarzio DP 188 Pro Track is a vertical humbucker in single coil format, which produces the warm and balanced sound of a vintage humbucker. Therefore, it is most suited for Stratplayers, who (without annoying guitar changes) want to use this sound variation in their playing. Very suitable as a bridge pickup combined with typical single coils in neck and middle position. There is also an option whereby the bridge and middle provide the classic Stratsounds while the DP188 at the neck then delivers a truly warm, fat tone - making even a jazz session possible.

  • In single coil format
  • With continuous magnets
  • Colour: Black

Great for Vintage Blues Tones

BrendanM, 14.11.2014
I have installed this pickup in the bridge position of my vintage style Fender strat(alder body, rosewood fretboard). I was looking for a beefier sound than the stock bridge SC. This pickup doesn´t perform miracles, but it attenuates the treble and adds some mids which makes the bridge position sound more bearable. It combines nicely with the stock single coil in the middle, you don´t lose that ´quack´. It sounds like a dark single coil, which makes sense when you consider that PAFs were originally designed to emulate P90s. The tone reminded of Albert Collins who of course played a Telecaster, but had a humbucker installed in it. If you´re into blues and not screaming modern gain, I recommend this pickup. If you want more modern gain, go for the Tonezone which I tried, but found too hot and too heavy in the midrange. The DP188 is definitely more bluesy and vintage.

What can one say about DiMarzio pickups.

Great sound, well made, performs as it should.

Advice: Not that I'm given to advise anybody normally, but just to say that if you have any uncertainties about DiMarzio's and which one to buy, go to their website, email them and you'll find them extremely helpful!

Great Service Thomann.
As Always, thanks!
