When DiMarzio started working with Billy Corgan on the guitar pickups for his signature Strat, they sent him several models to try out. He liked the Air Norton S in the neck, Chopper in the middle and Tone Zone S in the bridge. After playing them on several gigs, he asked for some changes in the neck and bridge pickups. Corgan wanted a deeper sound from the low strings without losing any punch, and he didn't want the sound to get muddy with high-gain amps. To do this, DiMarzio lowered the frequency response of one of the coils in each pickup just enough to boost the bass while opening up the mids. The end result is this DiMarzio DP225 BC1, the ceramic neck pickup that's now in Billy's signature Fender Stratocaster.

Comments about DiMarzio DP225 BC1 Billy Corgan Neck Pickup:
If you love that single coil sound, but you miss the fullness of a humbucker, this pickup is perfect for you. Clean sound it's deep and clear, while used with distortion it grwols without getting muddy or ugly sunding. I haven't stopped playing my Fender Stratocaster since I've had this pickup installed. This is a must for those who love single coils but are tired of hum noise and want to get great definition while using a clean or distorted channel.
