Following in the footsteps of FRED, Norton has the kind of rich harmonics you thought you could only get from a single coil. The pickup also has more volume, midrange, and bass than a vintage humbucker. The patented dual-resonance design lets bridge humbuckers sound solid, or a neck pickup to sound so big. Recommended for the bridge position, but can also be used at the neck with hotter humbuckers like Tone Zone, Super Distortion, and Super 3 (See recommended accessories box on this page).
Norton was designed to extend the range and power of standard output humbuckers without going over the top. More modern than a PAF sound, the guitar pickup yields more midrange crunch and high-frequency pick harmonics than vintage-style pickups. Really good for opening up the sound of mahogany set-neck guitars.

I own several guitars, and I have DiMarzios in most of them. I recently decided to experiment with the Bridge pickup in my Ibanez RG570. I already have experience with the Tone Zone and Fred in the Bridge of similar guitars. This time I wanted a pickup that would combine the best qualities of both. The Norton nails it! It has the tight low end & harmonic capabilities of the Fred coupled with the fat midrange of the Tone Zone. It's very versatile in that it can crunch or sing equally well. It is also quite responsive to picking dynamics.
