Dark Matter 2™ Bridge

DP268F

We love working with Steve Vai. As an artist, he’s constantly evolving and expanding the limits with his playing, composing, and instruments. So when he approached us about pickups for a new incarnation of his signature JEM, we developed Dark Matter 2™ Neck, Bridge, and Middle models. These pickups are specifically EQed to match the earthy, organic aura of the new guitar.

High output pickups can sometimes have anomalies in the high register, meaning they have some sharp edges. While they’re definitely high output like Steve’s other pickups, the new Dark Matter 2™ pickups are engineered with a slight softness on the top end.

Dark Matter 2™ Neck and Bridge models feature a custom laser-cut pickup grill with interlocking gear patterns. (The Dark Matter 2™ Middle pickup is a single-coil in satin nickel.)

Dark Matter 2™ pickups come standard in the new Ibanez JEM Woody guitar, and are available to purchase individually from DiMarzio.

The Dark Matter 2™ Bridge is available in F-spacing only.

Tech Talk

The Dark Matter 2™ represents a change in direction for Steve Vai towards a more organic, smoother sound with softer highs and less raw power. The Dark Matter 2™ Bridge Model has a very modern approach that blends clarity and warmth while avoiding both mud and shrillness. It shines with everything from pristine clean to massive overdrive.
