    This is the second time I have emailed tech support at DiMarzio and they answered within 48 hours.
    They even responded on a Sunday!
    Do these guys ever rest?!
    Anyways on the top of making spectacular pick-ups they also visibly care and answer all questions.

    They are known for their ceramic DP122 model P pick-up but I have also discovered the DP250 which is a very good vintage style Precision split coil pickup which remains relatively unknown even on Talk Bass. This last pick-up is as good as pick-ups twice as expensive (think all the big and boutique names) and capture the vintage vibe very well.

    Quality, value and service these guys hit on all the right notes!

    Awesome, I'm glad to hear they were so good with email. I've always had good luck with them on the phone, too.

    The pickup is not even listed on their site, I had to inquire about it. They responded of course!
    Only one or two stores currently carry it. Amazing.

    Area Js are going in my new Warmoth JJ 4 string bass.

    I might try the 5 string Area Js in a used Yamaha BBN5 I just ordered.

    I'm also considering an Area PJ set in another 4 string.

    I've used Seymour Duncan SPB-1 vintage P and STK-J2 Hot Stack J in the past, so a comparison would be interesting.
