Transition Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Lukather and Luke's new LIII Music Man guitar. The pickups are named after Steve's album, Transition. Lukather played the LIII guitar with Transition pickups throughout the record. The passive Transition humbuckers are both subtle and tough. They have power and they have depth. Steve says they're organic, and they allow him to own his sound. "These days I like it simple and direct," he shares. The Transition Neck Model performs like a vintage humbucker with a bad attitude. It has punch and edge, and it's fast.
Recommended for neck position. Can be used in bridge.
The Transition Neck Model has very good balance between solid bass and glassy treble. The spread between lows and highs creates a big sound that works well for both solos and backup, while the frequency response of the coils is tuned just far enough apart to open up the mids without sounding hollow.

Comments about DiMarzio DP254 Transition Neck Humbucker Pickup F-Spaced:
What can you say - Steve Lukather - Fantastic Tone and a Brilliant Musician. These pickups sound great in my basswood & maple guitar. They sound similar to Steve's EMG pickups from the previous Luke versions, but in a passive pickup. Be aware that they sounded different in a Luke III and my JP6. They actually sounded better to my ears in the Luke III. Since they are designed for that guitar and switching system, I guess that makes sense. No complaints though, they are terrific sounding pickups.
