When You Want It Huge, Pick the Super Distortion!

The DiMarzio Super Distortion is one of DiMarzio's earliest pickups, and it's designed to send your tube amp straight into overdrive, courtesy of its ultra-high output! Expect power and tone from this classic pickup - both single notes and chords are huge, with humbucker-signature thick, boosted mids; fat highs; and killer lows. Generally a bridge-position pickup, but great in the neck with lower-gain guitar amplifiers, the DiMarzio Super Distortion was designed to make the most out of solidbody guitars. Need it fat? Pick up the DiMarzio Super Distortion.

Great pickup

Great pickup. Replaced a custom wound 'miti-mite' pickup in the neck of a custom 64 SG. the old pickup gave up the ghost during a major rework - the SD gives more clarity than the old pickup - but my remaining mity-mite is totally amazing regarding gravel and sustain. The two together give defination where it wasn't there before. Good pickup.
Music background: long time

Super Ds!

These pickups have that classic rock tone! A beautiful midrange that cuts through the mix with nice even lows and a sweet high end. Roll back the volume knob and they clean up nicely too. I have these pickups in three of my my Les Pauls and would consider this as my go to pickup when considering replacing stocks. Again, great for classic hard rock, fusion, etc. Think Ace Frehley, Al DiMeola, Iron Maiden!
3/5

Why so cheap

Was wondering why these pickups were so cheap.. they sound good.. I like them.. I think I'm going to replace my bridge pickup with a lace senor or a lace deathbucker... but I love the sd in the neck posotion. They are great in that position... but ide like that to be a little stronger in the bridge slot... great all around pickup tho...
