DiMarzio Bluesbucker Humbucker Pickup - F-spaced Nickel
Special Order

Classic P90 Tone Without the Hum

The DiMarzio Bluesbucker pickup looks like a humbucker, but delivers the unmistakable sound of a vintage P90. This means that any guitar with standard-sized humbuckers can rock hum-free P90 tone without putting it on the chopping block. DiMarzio's patented Virtual Vintage and Airbucker technologies ensure that the Bluesbucker reacts like a true single-coil, making it extremely sensitive to your playing dynamics. Together, a pair of Bluesbuckers deliver the open, slightly hollow sound that single-coils are known for. Splitting the coils yields authentic single-coil chime.

Twin coils for a versatile tones

The twin coils inside of the DiMarzio Bluesbucker pickup serve different purposes. A hot coil with six adjustable pole pieces provides your tone. The other coil sports solid pole pieces and is there to kill the hum. At Sweetwater, we've found that because the Bluesbucker's coils perform different functions, the direction that it's mounted dramatically affects your tone. When the hot coil is closest to your bridge, you get a brighter tone; towards the neck it's warmer. Experimenting with unorthodox pickup orientations yields everything from fat P90 tones to chiming chords to Nashville twang.
