The DiMarzio DP187 The Cruiser Bridge Guitar Pickups are for the player who’s up for something more modern with no 60-cycle hum, string drop-outs or sustain-killing magnet pull. This great pickup is full of harmonic overtones for a true single-coil tone and has an open, vocal mid-range. The Cruiser pickups from DiMarzio are hotter than traditional single-coils, and the bass strings have more chunk. The Cruiser matches great with medium-output humbuckers and maintains its tonal identity with high-gain amps and multiple effects.
All positions. Bridge position with lower output models in neck and middle, or neck and middle position with a higher output bridge pickup or full-size humbucker.
The obvious question about The Cruiser is ‘How does it compare to a single-coil sound?’ The unwound strings are very close, while the wound strings are fatter-sounding than a true single-coil. There's also a midrange scoop that's unique to the Cruiser Bridge. This is really effective for getting big-sounding chords, because high and low strings sound more spread out from each other. Having a total magnet pull that's about 40 percent less than standard single-coils also means The Cruiser can be adjusted much closer to the strings for more power than stock pickups can achieve.
