Overview

The DiMarzio DP161F Steve's Special Pickup is a non-traditional approach to high-output bridge humbucking pickup design. Most hot humbuckers concentrate the pickup's power in a narrow frequency range for maximum impact. The DiMarzio Special spreads the sound over a broader range so bass and treble tones are boosted, and midrange is lowered. The result is a sound that's hot, clean, and open at the same time. This is an F-spaced pickup. 390mV output.

Features

Clean overdrive with high-gain amps
Very effective in dual sound and coil splitting clean modes
For soloing, this is a very good pickup to play with a midrange-heavy amp
The mid-scoop in the pickups' sound keeps the initial pick attack clean and the notes don't run together as much with legato playing, even with heavy overdrive
Specifications
Wiring Standard 4 conductor
Magnet Ceramic
Output 390mV
DC Resistance 17.89K
Year of introduction 1995
Patent # 4,501,185
Warranty
MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY
Full 5 year warranty on all pickups.

2nd Steves Special

By Patricia Bell

from Holiday,FL

Comments about DiMarzio DP161F Steve's Special Guitar Pickup F-Spaced:

This is the second time I have chosen a Steve's Special Humbucker,Fspaced in Black..I have one in my 1992 RG FMTB,and the new one is going in my 1991 RG570 FM CA..Either that or it might get installed into my 1987 RG560..BUt I digress..I LOVE these pickups because they ALWAYS sound great..Clear,crisp,and cooperative..and QUIET..I love that with a small change to my EQ settings in my Boss GT8 I can change the sound..Cleans are super crisp,and overdriven chords are amazing..Thanks again for a super purchase..Rock on People.!

not for mahogany

By TIM

from canton ga

Comments about DiMarzio DP161F Steve's Special Guitar Pickup F-Spaced:

I was looking for an articulate pickup with well defined highs for my mahogany gibson flying V . I watched all the vids I could find on this pup and it looked good on paper so I bought one. In the vids it sounded like what I wanted however I couldn't find a vid of this pup in an all mahogany guitar .Well in my V it was everything I didn't want .It sounded mushy the bottom end was so undefined it was terrible and there was no note seperation when playing chords . In short this pickup was horrible. so if your planning on dropping this in an all mahogany guitar I would say pass .However it may sound good in something with a maple cap to give it some snap and definition. a side note . I swapped out the ceramic mag for an alnico 5 and it changed the character of the pickup completely and now it sounds great .
