No humbucking pickup sounds exactly like a vintage single-coil, but the Cruiser is about the closest you can come. We make one coil the woofer, and the other the tweeter. This extends the range of the noise-canceling design, and allows us to enhance the best qualities of each coil while fine-tuning the output. DiMarzio calls this their dual-resonance design, and it's patented. There is less magnetic pull, and it still sounds clean, clear, and bright.
Recommended for bridge position with DP186, or neck & middle with hotter bridge like Fast Track 1, Chopper, Pro Track, or full-size humbuckers (See recommended accessories box on this page).

Comments about DiMarzio DP187 Cruiser Bridge Pickup:
I am a huge fan of Andy Timmons so I try my best to sound like him. I also try my best to sound like him but still have a versatile guitar for other styles. This thing has a great midrange and can sound fat without getting messy. It also doesn't get sharp and harsh. I have this on my strat in the neck position with a Dimarzio AT1 Humbucker in the bridge position. It sounds very close to Andy's tone. And if you are a Timmons fan like me then just know that Andy uses this bridge model pickup in the neck and middle positions on his AT model guitars. It is also very quiet. I have very little to almost no noise coming from this thing even with the distortion on. Buy this pickup and listen to Timmons.
