DIMARZIO DP212 EJ CUSTOM BRIDGE - NICKEL COVER - ERIC JOHNSON HUMBUCKER PICKUP

$159.00

DP212

Although Eric Johnson is best known as a Strat® player, he has always played humbucker-equipped guitars as well. After getting a new Gibson® Les Paul® 1959 re-issue, Eric asked us if it could be made to sound like an old Gretsch® Country Gentleman guitar. We said, “No problem!” The pickups we designed are exact replacements for standard, full-size humbuckers. They’re bright and have great presence without sounding thin. When Eric tried them, he said they were almost as clear-sounding as Strat® pickups. He was surprised at how well they sounded with heavy distortion, because no matter how overdriven the sound, it did not become muddy. The EJ Custom™ is available with exposed coils in all standard DiMarzio® colors and plated or unplated nickel covers at additional cost.

Gibson® and Les Paul® are registered trademarks of Gibson Guitar Corp., with which DiMarzio, Inc. is not affiliated.

Recommended For

All positions, solid, semi-solid and hollow-body electric guitars.

Tech Talk

If you look at the DC Resistance specs for these pickups, you will see they're very similar to PAF®-style models. However, their performance is very different in two important areas. They have less power and much more treble response than “vintage” humbuckers. In fact, treble response is comparable to that of typical single-coils, but since bass response is still very solid, the EJ Custom™ isn't thin-sounding. It's outstanding for chords and finger-picking, and has exceptional definition for soloing, even with extreme amounts of distortion.
