DiMarzio Norton Green
The sound of a DiMarzio Norton Green is right between FRED and The Tone Zone. Its got some FRED-like harmonic overtones that can only be described as nasty, with more of the power and mid-range of the heavyweight Tone Zone. The same patented dual-resonance design used in FRED and The Tone Zone delivers a sound thats hotter and bigger than any vintage model, but not as loud as a distortion-class humbucker. Norton® might be our most versatile bridge pickup. Combine it with a wide choice of neck pickups like the Air Classic, PAF 36th Anniversary, PAF Pro®, and Air Norton.
Bridge position in all solid body guitars. Can also be used in neck position with higher output humbuckers.
Norton was originally designed to extend the tonal range and power of standard output humbuckers without going over the top. It’s more modern than a PAF® sound: the benchmark Gibson® Les Paul®/Marshall combination yields more midrange crunch and high frequency pick harmonics than vintage-style pickups were capable of putting out. Norton® is really good for opening up the sound of mahogany set-neck guitars.
