Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13™ guitar, the new Illuminator 7™ Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio. John says he looks for versatility in his pickups so that he’s able to span a multitude of different sounds within one guitar, going from massive overdrive, very tight, rhythmical and aggressive to “more expressive, dynamic and very liquid” when he plays solos. They’re a bit bold — possessing the clarity and presence that a 7-string pickup needs, balancing vintage and modern qualities without sacrificing the best of either.

John used the new Illuminator™ and Illuminator 7™ pickups during the recording of Dream Theater’s upcoming self-titled album. The album will be available September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records.

John wants his neck and bridge pickups to occupy separate musical spaces that “speak” to each other, with individual voices that both blend and stand on their own. The Illuminator 7™ Neck Model has the power to balance with the bridge pickup, and it also has excellent clarity throughout the entire 7-string frequency bandwidth.
