I am unsure of what I need!
you can always 'CONTACT US' and we will be more than happy to help you and there is also a comprehensive section of FAQs on the DiMarzio website
What is Standard spaced and F-Spaced?
First of all, the 2 width options ONLY applies to 6 string humbuckers
Strat, Tele, Bass, 7 String and 8 String just come in ONE standard width
F-Spaced = Floyd spacing
Virtually all guitars with a trem need an F-Spaced pickup in the bridge
Jems/RG's/S's etc also need F-Spaced at the neck too
Its common on Les Pauls and Musicman guitars to have an F at the bridge and standard at the neck.
To check, measure the string to string distance, above the pickup you want to change and go for the nearest
If you are unsure - just drop us a message!
Dimarzio set their standard pickups as 48mm from the centre of the outside two poles and 51mm for the F-Spaced
This is how it should look :
Strangely, Ibanez used standard spaced pickups on some of the early Jems and this is how they looked, which i'm sure you agree doesnt look too good :
What do Dimarzio's pickup codes mean???
Dimarzio's product codes split down quite easily
First thing to remember is each pickup will have a "standard" polepiece colour
With an Evolution this is Black
With a Tone Zone it is Nickel
See Dimarzio's website to check - the cheapest one will be the standard colour
A typical code would be DP159FBK+G
This means :
DP = Dimarzio Pickup
159 = Pickup type(Evolution in this example)
F = F-Spaced (just leave the F out if you want standard)
BK= Colour Black
+G = Polepiece colour (just leave out if you want standard)
So a DP155BL+B
Would be a Tone Zone, Standard Spaced in Blue with black poles
Dimarzio's colours are :
BK = Black
WH = White
CR = Cream
RD = Red
BL = Blue
PK = Pink
V = Voilet(Purple)
y = Yellow
GR = Green
AW = Aged White
MG = Mint Green
How do i know what colour options i can order in?
The easiest way to see straight away is to go to
Find the pickup you want and the options will be there - colour, polepieces etc
There are hundreds of colour combinations possible
So Dimarzio simplify it by just showing black/red, black/blue.......
So if you want a pickup with one bobbin red and one purple
As long as Dimarzio's colour chart says the pickup is available in red and also available in purple - its no problem to combine the 2 available colours!
Just contact us and we can order it for you
What are Dimarzio Humbuckers basic wiring colours?
Dimarzio on 4 conductor pickups use :
Red is the Hot output - to vol pot or switch
Middle of the two coils - solder black and white together and tape up, or use to split the humbucker
Green and braid to earth
This is the most basic way of wiring but there are HUNDREDS of different ways of wiring and combining pickups
Which way round do i put my humbucker pickups?
Fit your humbuckers :
Bridge pickup with the cable exit point on the treble side
Neck pickup with the cable exit point on the bass side
A humbucker is TWO coils with opposing polarity - and hence it gets rid of hum
And with the normal way of wiring - the two coils are in series so you get a thicker/beefier sound
If you have a humbucker with two North or Two South coils - it wont get rid of the hum
In typical RG/Jem Ibanez "Split-5" wiring you need a Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity(South polarity) middle pickup, so that in positions 2 and 4 when it combines with the inner North coil of either humbucker it gives a S+N combination and is hence hum-cancelling.
The Dimarzio True Velvet DP175S is the ideal "middle" position pickup - and is the one that Ibanez choose for their J-Custom guitars
