DiMarzio, Inc. welcomes TOTO guitarist Steve Lukather to its team of esteemed endorsers. DiMarzio announced it will release two new Transition humbucking pickups for electric guitars in early December of 2012. The Transition pickups were developed by DiMarzio and Lukather for his new LIII Music Man guitar. The pickups will also be available for retail sale from DiMarzio.

The Transition Neck Model (DP254) has very good balance between solid bass and glassy treble. The spread between lows and highs creates a big sound that works well for both solos and backup, while the frequency response of the coils is tuned just far enough apart to open up the mids without sounding hollow.

A powerful magnet and coils tuned to slightly different frequencies create very strong fundamental tones, with sustained notes that resolve easily to first- and second-order harmonics. The output rating is not as high as DiMarzio’s loudest models, but the Transition Bridge Model (DP255) puts a lot of impact into every picked note.

DiMarzio’s new Transition Neck and Bridge Model pickups are made in the U.S.A., and are available for order now. Suggested List Price for each pickup is $115
