Classic Early '60s Single-coil Tone, Hum-free Performance!

The DiMarzio Area '61 electric guitar pickup captures the classic sound of an early '60s Strat pickup while giving you hum-free performance. Ideal for use in all three of your Strat's pickup positions (or just about any guitar that accepts single-coil-sized pickups, for that matter), the Area '61 also produces less magnet pull for better intonation and sustain. Depending on your pick attack and guitar volume, you can get everything from tough tones to crystalline clean sounds from your favorite guitar when you use the Area '61.

  • Color: White
  • Type: Humbucker
  • Wiring: 4-conductor
  • Magnet: Alnico 2
  • Output: 142
  • DC resistance: 6.46

The DiMarzio Area '61 gives you classic early '60s tone and hum-free performance!

DiMarzio guitar pickups give you the tone and output you need to get the most out of your guitar. Dozens of guitar legends have used DiMarzio pickups in their prized instruments, from Joe Satriani and Steve Vai to David Gilmour and Eric Johnson, Jerry Garcia to John Petrucci - the list goes on and on. Ever since the introduction of the Super Distortion humbucker in the early 1970s, players have relied on DiMarzio for a range of replacement pickups that suit their needs best.

Great Noiseless Single Coil PUP Upgrade

Bought one of these in combination with two Area 67's at the recommendation of my luthier. Definitely a wise choice. My MIM Strat sounds like a new guitar as the tone in all 5 positions is awesome. Very articulate, chimey, and balanced sound. The best part is that there is little or no hum. I put the 67's in the neck and middle position and the Area 61 in the bridge as this PUP is a little stronger. The only thing that I had to do was adjust the Treble settings on my amps to around 10 o'clock as these PUPS are very bright. Played a gig last night and my wife shot video: I couldn't believe the classic blues, rock crunch and country tones that my guitar and Peavey Classic 30 were producing.

Area '61 a winner

Very impressed! Currently have two American Strats that have had several pickup combos and now have one with Carvin AP11,s and Humbucker at bridge(my favorite) and just pulled SD P-Rails from other one(intresting,but sounded better on Hog bodies.) Hearing a lot of good things about Area pups so ordered a 61 for neck on the stock pickguard.Love the sound,very Fender but balanced and open.Hotter than stock with a nice warmth that opens to quite a sparkle with a twist of tone knob,responds to height adjustment smoothly and is very quite.Don't know how they accomplished it with hum canceling coils but has that 60's sound (yes,I was there),so impressed I'm ordering the 58...which reminds me,thanks Brad,love the Orianthi.
