Mo’ Joe™

DP216

Joe Satriani has used FRED® as his main bridge pickup for years. In 2005, Joe asked us for a hotter and bigger version to replace the FRED® in his new Ibanez® guitars. The new model called the Mo’ Joe™ is all about tone and definition. Its name says it all. It has more power than FRED® but it doesn’t sacrifice clarity or dynamics. Additionally, all the harmonics that made FRED® so good are all there ready to jump out at the touch of a guitar pick. Having more output makes the Mo’ Joe™ a perfect match for the PAF Joe™ in the neck position. The combination delivers great versatility and control from rhythms to solos.

Tech Talk

The last few years have seen Joe develop a new signature tube amp and start using heavier-gauge strings more often. Both developments emphasized the importance of the Mo’ Joe™ having a high degree of string separation without sounding sterile or processed. We got this by slightly increasing the distance between the center frequencies that the coils are tuned to, without increasing DC resistance. The result is a pickup that’s both hotter and more articulate. Mo’ Joe is used by permission of Mojo Musical Supply, with whom DiMarzio, Inc. is not affiliated.
