The DiMarzio DP255F Transition F-Spaced Bridge Humbucker Pickup
provides a rich, organic tone that Steve Lukather desired when he teamed up with DiMarzio to design the pickup. A powerful magnet and coils tuned to slightly different frequencies create very strong fundamental tones, with sustained notes that resolve easily to first and second order harmonics. The output rating isn’t extremely high, but the Transition Bridge Model puts a lot of impact into every picked note. This features DiMarzio F-spacing
for most tremolo-equipped guitars.
The passive DP255 Transition humbucker is both subtle and tough. They have power and they have depth. Steve says they’re organic, and they allow him to own his sound. ‘These days I like it simple and direct,’ he shares. Steve says he's started over sonically and is into a more organic sound these days, but the Transition Bridge Model has a tough, in-your-face sound that's also perfect for shredding and technical playing.
