Dimarzio Model one what??

Discussion in 'Ask Justin Meldal-Johnsen' started by Surprise Panda!, Sep 8, 2008.


  1. Hi,

    I was reading your gear setup on your Geddy's, and it said you put DiMarzio Model one's in there. Isn't that a mistake? Model one is a woofer pickup, is it not? I'm confused :eyebrow:.

    I love your tone with the Geddy, though.

    Ya, the Model One was a replacement for the Gibson mudbucker. In that one Geddy I saw in early NIN pics, he had Model J's, but I wouldn't put it past him to load one with Model Ones. I have one in an old EB-0 that sits in my closet broken, and it's a cool pickup. Might sound cool on a Jazz.
     
  3. Model J's? Do they sell those anymore?

    You bet! One of their staples for 30 years or more. I had a set on a Steinberger copy I used to have, and now I have one on a PJ copy I have.
     
  5. I don't see it on DiMarzio's Website

    They're available in black or cream.

    Model J, that's right. In cream. Sick sounding pickup. Hefty, and not too bright.
     
  11. Yeah, I noticed this in the article too. Putting Model J's in my Geddy is going to be sweet.

    what pot value? 500k? or something else...
     
  14. Just like to chime in that DiMarzio Model J's are an excellent upgrade for a Jazz. I can't imagine any boutique pup giving me sucha nice tone for rock. Ridiculous value!

    I've got some model J's in a fretless and it is one of the best sounding pickups for fretless that I've ever heard. Growly, articulate, and dark.

    I just got a set Model J's and wanted some feedback on series or parallel wiring...do you have a preference on the Geddys?

    I have no idea what that actually means, but mine are humbucking, if that helps. Great pickups, y'all! Dark! And mean sounding!

    Never tried flats, so I dunno. Rounds are awesome. It takes the edge off a little bit, in fact.
