"DiMarzio DP409 Vintage Heavy Blues 2....NICE !!"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

Haven't had a chance to fully explore all this pickup's possibilities, but has been installed in my Fender MIM tobacco burst 60 yr maple neck guitar....bridge position with a set of Fender vintage noiseless in middle and neck....wanted more power/push in the bridge position than the noiseless has....good match with the other two, also Alnico2 magnets....still retains the single coil strat vibe, just more of it! I play mostly blues and classic/blues based rock....this fits the bill very well....Looking forward to exploring all its sonic capabilities....Not bad DiMarzio...not bad! Coming from a Seymour Duncan guy....my first Dimarzio replacement pickup....Quite satisfied....there may be others down the road! And thanks to zZounds as well....!!

"Awesome Strat Bridge Pickup"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was looking for a versatile Strat bridge pickup that would cover a lot of ground and compliment the two DiMarzio Area 67's in my Strat when I converted it from HSS to SSS. I spoke with DiMarzio tech support who are always exceptional and they recommended the HB2. It soundss great with my 250k pots and maple neck/fretboard. The HB2 has the bite and cut you expect from a Strat bridge pickup, while rolling off the tone fattens it up nicely (configured so 2nd tone controls bridge and middle). Boy does it quack with the Area 67 in the middle in position 2. The icing on the cake is that it's completely noiseless and the difference between a true single coil is negligible. It sings, screams & growls while remaining very touch sensitive. String pull isn't a problem with the A2 magnet. I highly recommend it!
