This DiMarzio DP218SP Super Distortion S Humbucker Pickup (No Flange) is a special version of the Super Distortion S. 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.
Super Distortion S
The Super Distortion S offers the performance of the famous Super Distortion in a humbucking Strat bridge direct replacement-size pickup. DiMarzio built in the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super Distortion the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers. They also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion S will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. The new model has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes, and makes a great bridge position combination with the Pro Track (our sku# 302326), The Chopper (our sku# 302460), and Fast Track 1 (our sku# 302441).
Recommended for bridge position in solid body guitars, but can also be used in neck and middle.
Since the Super Distortion S will usually be installed in the slanted bridge position of a 25½ scale guitar, the specs of the original Super Distortion humbuckers have been adjusted to compensate. Treble response is smoother, and bass response is tighter. Because of their narrow magnetic fields, dual-blade Strat replacements are not generally well-known for their splitting ability. However, the Super Distortion S has a very good single-coil sound in split mode that isn™t brittle or weak.
