Overview

Billy Sheehan has used the original DiMarzio Model P and Model One bass pickups for many years. Because of the demands Billy puts on his system, DiMarzio made several modifications to existing models in order to deliver even more of what he wanted. These are the exact pickups Billy uses in his signature Yamaha basses.

The DiMarzio DP145 Will Power Bass Neck Pickup is very deep-sounding with great low-end definition. Its dimensions are the same as the Model One, but it's a little louder and fatter-sounding, and pole piece spacing is slightly wider for better string alignment with long-scale basses.

The DP145 pickup is humbucking with 4-conductor wiring.

Sounds great

By Fernanda

from Rio de Janeiro

Sounds great. Punchier yet mellow, woody sound (I use flatwounds). Should definetely install with the series/parallel wiring. A little wood carve on the bass body needed due to its beefier construction. Still easy to install. An excellent upgrade to Epiphone basses.

A great addition!

By Joseph Azael Garza Valdez

from Laredo, TX

For the record, I didn't buy this pickup to replace any mudbucker, but as an additional pickup for my Single Coil Precision Bass. Having said that, this pickup sounds fantastic by itself! I use round-wounds and play with a pick and a lot of distortions in a band with two guitarists and a not-so-loud drummer. It might not be the most "in your face" sound, but it sits in the mix really well. It keeps your bass fat and growling in there between the bass drum and the guitars. Very defined mids and a smooth top end. Where it really excels is when used in combination with the Single Coil, it sounds like a Split Coil P-bass on steroids; a lot of bottom end with no boominess, defined mids and lots of top end. I give it 4 stars because the pole pieces do not align well with the strings. I installed it right next to the neck, with no gap between the pickup and the 20th fret, and the G string pole pieces are way off. This doesn't seem to affect the sound of the G string at all though, but cosmetically speaking it looks bad on a closer look.
