Designed for maximum impact and power-to get a tight, aggressive, loud sound. It incorporates a patented dual-resonance coil configuration that senses more harmonic overtones than ordinary humbuckers. Works in almost all solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies as well. Though specifically created for Steve Vai's Ibanez Jems, it can add a lot of punch to Les Paul and similar set-neck guitars. Makes the lowest notes jump out of the amp, and feedback occurs easily with a wide range of harmonic overtones.

The Evo neck pickup would have to be one of the BEST neck pup's I've EVER heard!!! In the higher registers it gives a very clear bright tone. In the lower registers, it doesn't get muddy at all even with high gain chording! Its all warm brilliance! Mind you, I'm playing through the mutt of all guitars, the Epiphone Les Paul Special II. Basswood body and Mahogany neck, an odd combo, but the mahogany neck warms up the basswood body enough that the tone is decadent. Even when played through a solid state Peavey Vypyr 15 its got a beautiful distinct tone... played through my old Peavey VT Deuce 100W on the clean channel, its awe-inspiring! Beware though... it WILL show every mistake you make and will bring out the crazy neuances of your playing style and technique. Overall, a great pickup for both beginners and veterans alike.
Great pickup! I installed it with the coil split. What a great tone, response, and feeling. I can get a very tight sound for rock and metal, and using the coil split I can get very nice fat strat clean sounds for blues.
Steve Vai uses these pickups... I'm sure they'll handle anything you can play. These pups sure can for me! Best pickups ever, no doubt.
The DiMarzio DP158 Evolution Neck Pickup to me was a must have, just because of the sound I heard from Steve Vai's Albums. To have a sound that is so incredible like his, is hard to find. I dont really like sounding like someone else guitar, but in this situation, The sound is great and irrestable. I have this along with the Bridge pickup and together are freakin' great.
