About this product
DiMarzio has designed the new Illuminator Neck humbucker for John Petrucci's Music Man JP13 guitar, offered along with the bridge model to complement John's demands for a versatility that allows the legendary musician to cover a multitude of different sounds with just one guitar.
This requires everything from massive overdrive that's tight, rhythmical and aggressive, to sounds which are more expressive and complex, mostly for solo work. The result is a pickup that's bold and exceptionally clear, boasting the presence necessary to take John's sound to the next level.
John used the new Illuminator and Illuminator 7 pickups during the recording of Dream Theater's self-titled album in 2003, filling his desire for both neck and bridge pickups that occupy separate musical speakers, remaining completely individual and yet harmonious in the way they work together. The neck model is louder than a typical vintage humbucker, featuring much more headroom and a very wide-frequency bandwidth so musicians really have control over their style.
Whatever the sound and situation, this humbucker can be trusted to provide plenty of clarity with a cleam amp, and warmth minus muddiness when it comes to heavy overdrive.
