We first heard about Paul Gilbert in the 1980s. Billy Sheehan told us about an amazing 18-year-old who had recently arrived in California and had blown everyone away with his musicianship, speed, and awesome technical ability in Racer X.
Naturally, we immediately asked Paul to become a DiMarzio® endorser. It was the start of a great relationship.
Recently, Paul has been heavily into our Area™ pickups. He’s also been playing a lot of Racer X-style instrumentals, so the time was right for signature Paul Gilbert single-coil sized DiMarzio® pickups. The outcome of our teamwork is the new Injector™ Neck and Bridge Model pickups. The Injector™ Neck and Bridge Models are hum-canceling singles with superior speed, dynamic range and 40% less magnet-pull than standard single-coils for superior pick attack, speed and clarity. Hear both the Neck and Bridge Injector™ pickups on Paul’s latest CD, Fuzz Universe.
