DiMarzio DP217 YJM Single-Coil Pickup

With more presence than Yngwie Malmsteen's HS-3, this single coil pickup works in all 3 positions for a warm Strat sound.

"Should have got a HS-3"

I don't like the stagger on it. The G and D string pole magnets are too high for me. When I get the high E and B to sound good I get Stratitis playing on the G in the upper registers.To get rid of the warble I have to back down the height, then I loose compression on the top strings. May replace it soon with a HS-3.

Musical Background:

Playing for 25 years all Strats all the time.

Musical Style:

Modern Rock, Modern Country
