The DiMarzio DP193 Air Norton Pickup is the neck pickup that breaks all the rules. It's fat and warm, yet not muddy. It's hot, but not distorted. It's even got cool harmonics. The patent-applied-for magnetic structure reduces string-pull, so sustain is improved, and pick attack and dynamics are tremendously controllable and expressive. Combine the Air Norton pickup with a DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge position for a perfect blend of power and tone. DP193 pickups are recommended for solidbody and semi-hollowbody guitars.
When the Air Norton is in the neck position, it's a warm, open-sounding pickup with enough power to balance with all bridge humbuckers. Try the DiMarzio DP193 with 500K pots for maximum treble and harmonic presence. In the bridge position, the sound is medium output with solid lows and biting harmonics. You can try it here with 250K controls, or a 500K volume and 250K tone to fatten the highs up a little. The Air Norton combines well with an Air Classic in the neck, and also with Cruiser, Chopper and Blue Velvet single coil pickups.

I am giving this five stars, and it is a great pickup, I had it in the bridge of my Faded SG but like others have said, it's a great neck pickup. I can see that, and I could have lived with it in the bridge, but I am returning it to try the Andy Timmons AT-1. I liked the soundclips on the Dimarzio website. I'll see how that goes. Still, the Air Norton is a great pickup. I just think it would be better in the bridge position on a Les Paul.
This is simple, I've bought nearly 10 dimarzio pickups and this is the BEST (actually my favourite) pickup. Even when the sound depend of different things, the air norton sound is warm, dry, with a lot of body... amazing, beautiful!! once again, the best neck pickup I've ever heard!!
Neck position. Mahogany Les Paul. Turned out to great combination with Evo2. Will produce grinding rhythm to clean, warm finger picking. This pickup loves to play split in single coil mode, great for dialing in country or blues tones. Most versitile guitar I have. This pickup gives an adictively pure sound you can't get enough of.
I love the warm sound this pickup has. Not muddy at all, and great harmonics too. A must-try for everyone, you will not be disappointed.
The Air Norton is a very good neck pickup. The tone is warm and full but not muddy or boomy. It leans a little in the direction of a single coil tone but still has all the fullness of a humbucker. It's a great neck pickup for soloing which can't be said of a lot of neck pickups. Over all, a very usable pickup.
