DiMarzio Minibucker DP168 Nickel
The classic miniature humbucker had a sound that was a cross between a vintage single-coil and a PAF. Not a hot pickup, the mini substituted articulation and openness for power. We’ve retained these qualities and utilized our patented dual resonance design to add even more clarity and musical character, and we dip the DiMarzio Minibucker in wax after the cover has been installed to eliminate microphonic squealing. We’ve also included 4-conductor wiring for greater sound options.
Recommended For: All positions on solid body guitars.
Tech Talk: Don’t be deceived by the high resistance figure. This is a relatively quiet, toney pickup. It’s very responsive to tone changes at the amp – turning up the treble creates a definite scream factor, while turning up the bass makes a more vintage feel.
Wiring: 4 conductor
DC Resistance: 12.08
Year of Introduction: 1998
