The result of years of research for a very demanding player: Steve Vai.

The DiMarzio DP159 Evolution Bridge Pickup is a hefty humbucker designed for maximum impact and power. The Evolution pickup's sound is tight, aggressive, and loud. The DP159 Evolution incorporates DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Perfect for solos that really cut through. Low notes are very tight, and the highs have a lot of presence. DiMarzio designed the DP159 pickup for Steve's Ibanez Jems, but it can add a lot of punch and definition to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars -- even the lowest bass notes really jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

  • Long time Pro-player Blown away...!!!!!

    As reviewed by Nathan Clay on 1/23/2011

    I recently bought a set of these Pickups. Neck and Bridge. I put them on a Les Paul Special which is the lowest priced Les Paul you can buy. The Pickups that were on it were the 409 set for neck and Bridge. When I first plugged this guitar in after installing the Dimarzio Evolution pickups. My Jaw dropped. And each night I wake up in the middle of the night and plug in the head phones into my Effects unit and again my mind is just blown. WOW and OMG...!!! These pickups brought this Les Paul to life. I was disappointed with the guitar that I got in a trade. thought I had really messed up. Now This Les Paul is the hottest Guitar I have ever played on. Bar none. My little Les Paul Special Blows away the les Paul standards and classics I have played. I have a American Stratocaster standard that I was in love with now it sounds flat. I am going to buy one of these Evolutions for the bridge and put some area 61 single coils on it as well. can't wait. These Evolutions I set them up with a coil split when you push the volume knob and when you push the other volume knob it puts them out of phase. In phase with single coil tap. Sounds like the hottest telecaster I have ever heard. Out of Phase single coil tap sounds like the hottest Stratocaster ever. and when I run them as humbuckers even with the guitar turned down to 3 the guitar sings and can drive the amp inputs. turn it up to ten and it screams like a wounded Dragon. Buy these Pickups I am going to set up my HSS Strat with one and a couple of area 61 single coil humbuckers. You wont be sorry. My Les Paul is the hottest guitar I have ever touched and I have been playing professionally for over 40 years.

  • Great tone

    As reviewed by Michael Poff on 4/24/2013

    My Ibanez RG had INF pickups. They all sounded thin and the bridge pickup was especially harsh. I put the Evolution pickup in the bridge and it made a world of difference. Now it sounds fatter, clear, warm and punchy. Plenty of treble but not harsh treble like the old pickup. I love it and would like to put an Evo in the neck also.

  • A Leads Dream!

    As reviewed by SytheZ on 10/5/2006

    The DiMarzio Evo Pickups are a sure thing if playing lead, but beware, that these pickups will "pick up" every slightest mistake you make. So these are more for the advanced guitarists out there and not well suited for chording and rhythm. But if you want an awesome sound for leads and solos these pickups are the way to go.
