This DiMarzio DP182SP Fast Track 2 (No Flange) is a special version of the Fast Track 2. It's designed for guitars where the pickups are mounted to the body and whose cavities are routed like a lipstick tube with no triangular space facing the bridge. The side-flange (triangle part) is cut off on this pickup and the leads are instead installed at each end of the bobbin.
Fast Track 2
It' not any bigger than a single-coil pickup, but the sound of the Fast Track 2 puts it right in the wide open, œeverything-on-11 school. It' got three times the output of an average single-coil, with a huge mid-range and bass punch and a strong resemblance to the Super 3 (our sku# 302055). This is DiMarzio's hottest single-coil sized bridge pickup ” particularly useful when you need a tightly focused jolt of power to crank your amplifier into rich overdrive. Combining it with a Pro Track (our sku# 302326), Air Norton S (our sku# 300291), BC-1 (our sku# 476232) or The Chopper (our sku# 302460) in the neck position and The Cruiser (our sku# 302324) or Fast Track 1(H75689) in the middle makes a guitar with an outstanding, heavy sound.
Recommended for bridge position
To get some sense of the Fast Track 2, it's best to think of it as a Strat-sized version of the Super 3, the pickup it most closely resembles. Using a 500K volume control will open up the top end and is the recommend value. The best neck pickup choices with the Fast Track 2 would be relatively hot models like the The Chopper, Pro Track. Air Norton S and BC-1. DiMarzio recommends brighter models like the Cruiser or Fast Track 1 in the middle. You can also mix it with Stratier pickups like the Area and Virtual Vintage lines, if you're prepared for the jump in power of the bridge position.
