No two guitarists are created equal, so it stands to reason that we'd all have different preferences for our pickups. It follows that not every set of stock pickups is right for every player, but that doesn't mean you have to give up on the instrument of your dreams - just swap in a new set of pickups to get the sound you want. And with the huge selection of DiMarzio guitar pickups you'll find here, it's pretty easy to find the best ones to deliver that perfect signature sound for you. This is also the place to be if you're building a new instrument from scratch or restoring a weathered vintage model: whatever the reason you need pickups, DiMarzio can hook you up.
Naturally, choosing the right pickups for your guitar will depend on what sort of guitar it is. For instance, the DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Humbucker Pickup is designed to fit a Stratocaster while the DiMarzio Ionizer 7-String Neck Humbucker Pickup handles an extended-range 7-string guitar. Some models, like the DiMarzio Black Angel Passive Acoustic Soundhole Pickup, are made for acoustic guitars, allowing you to amplify an instrument without its own built-in pickups (or you can use it in tandem with those pickups in a mix to add depth to the tone). If you want to recreate the sound of a guitar legend, you could go for signature pickups like the DiMarzio Steve Vai Evolution Humbucker Set, or for the easiest installation, there are even pre-assembled units such as the DiMarzio FG2108 Paul Gilbert Injector Prewired Pickguard Pickup Set.
When all is said and done, it's up to you to decide which of these DiMarzio guitar pickups could be the best fit for your needs. There are certainly lots of them to choose from, so feel free to take your time and read up on some of the reviews and ratings left behind by guitarists who have tried them out. A little "homework" can go a long way toward helping you make the right choice from DiMarzio's impressive catalog of pickups.
