Overview

DiMarzio modeled their Area '58 after one of the most celebrated Strat pickups from 1958, with two major differences. The Area '58 has way less magnet pull, and virtually no hum. It's recommended for neck and middle, and can also be used in the bridge position.

A great pickup is clear and bright, but not thin-sounding. A great one makes the sound jump out of the amp when you pick hard and drop way down when you play softly, and the tone varies when the string is picked at different spots. DiMarzio designed the Area '58 to fit this profile exactly.

Tech Talk: The Area '58 has obvious similarities to the Virtual Vintage 2.1 it replaces, but there are several non-visible performance factors that have changed. Dynamic range and string definition are greatly increased, leading to improvements in both clean chord-playing and overdriven soloing. The '58 is very sensitive to small height adjustment differences: close to the strings produces a fatter, slightly compressed blues tone and further away yields crystal clean sounds. The final improvement is in noise reduction. All of the Virtual Vintage pickups have better hum cancellation than full-size humbuckers. The Area '58 and Area '61 are even quieter.

      Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

      I installed this pickup in the neck position of a Lone Star Stratocaster (HSS, Mexican Made Fender). The tone is fat and bright at the same time, no muddiness or shrill highs. There's also no noise because of the stacked design. This pickup is much better to my ears than the Fender Texas Special Pickups that came with my guitar.

            Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

            I have used this pickup now in all 3 positions in my american strat and it is my favorite of the area pickups. It sounds more like a true single coil to me, bright but with plenty of rough edges when you add gain. They really nailed it on this one. All of the areas are good, but this one just sounds spectacular. My favorite true single coil is the old Fender 57/62 pickup without the beveled polepieces ( good luck finding one) and this pickup gives you 90% of that tone and does not hum. Dimarzio has really made a great product and I applaud them for their efforts!! My amps are Fender Princeton, Vibro Champ, Tweed Deluxe, Pro Jr, Marshall LB20. Overdrive is Plexi-Drive or Blues Driver.

            I put this pickup in a Modern Player 3 pickup Telecaster with a DP417 Area T Tele Neck Pickup with Chrome Cover in the neck position and a DiMarzio DP153 Fred Humbucker in the bridge position. I was very pleased with the tonal range that gives me. These pickups have a greatFender tone. I also have one in the neck postition on a Strat which is also excellent.

            Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

            These are my favotire Strat pickups hands down. Well, two of them. Also like the area 61. No hum, not to basey, just enough thickness. Mr. Clean but can throw lots of distortion in there and rock like a champ. Even get it twangy enough for country.
            Easy to install, covers are a bit of an odd size so if you want different colors than what's available you'll have to look around a bit. only reason I give it a 9/10. Wires are super thin.
            Crazy awesome tone. Used them for years. Clean for those jazzy riffs and thick chords. I've got one in my neck position and another in the middle of my strat. Pair it with a area 61 in the bridge and you'll go crazy over your new tone.
            I've paid this price several times and will pay it again for every strat I buy. Always the same awesome tone.

            Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

            Playing for over 20years and these pickups are the best I have ever played as replacements for single coils.
            These pickups provide vintage single coil tones with no noise or hum. I have owned Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's and Texas Specials. I replaced my Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's in my Highway One strat for these and I noticed a big improvement in tone. Not to knock the Fat 50's, but they had too much bass to them which took away from the chime and woody tone I was looking for. The Area 58's have that chime but also can get texas bluesy as well if you keep the height close to the strings. I have an Area 61 in the Bridge which balances very well. All in all I am very satisfied and prefer these to the custom shop since they actually sound better and have no hum.
            These sound like vintage coils!
            Little pricey but worth it. They are also made in America which is a rare thing these days.

            I bought two of these for my middle and neck. Middle is open. The sound is amazing. I would highly recommend this pickup. Nice clean tone and great tone with distortion.

            This is how a neck pickup should sound in a strat, more output with no hum, if you buy it you wont be sorry

            Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

            I put a 58 in the neck of a HSS strat (rosewood fretboard) with a 61 middle and an Air Zone in the bridge. At first, I was running stock 250k pots and it was a tad dark and muddy sounding...never really ventured into bright territory. I switched the volume pot to 500k and WOW! All the pickups came alive. Great range of warm vintage woody tones to warm bright tones with plenty of attack. I agree with others, pickup height can be key with these pickups....so you'll want to tinker a bit. The 58 handles overdrive very well without getting messy and has great harmonics. Dead quiet, affordable, great sounding, hard to go wrong here.

            Comments about DiMarzio DP415 Area '58 Pickup:

            These Area pickups are amazing! I reviewed the 61 earlier[my mid pickup]my 58 was purchased first though, and is in the neck. I wanted more time before giving a scond review, the more I play these the more I love them, and can't decide which selector position to use.Everything about these pups are fantastic. Again the tone is beautiful, but what really kicks,are the dynamics, I am rarely using my tone control because by simply changing picking styles and using the volume pot I get all the response I need. Great pups indeed!
