Jake Bowen has a freeform approach to his music and the sounds he wants to create. His newest Ibanez-designed guitar represents a shift from his older dual-humbucker instrument with Titan humbuckers to a double-blade, Strat-style pickup for the neck and a humbucker in the bridge.
The Mirage pickups are the next step in that journey. Jake loves DiMarzio's The Chopper™, but he needed a tweak: a pickup that would function the same way in the angled neck position of his new guitar. He wanted a super saturated single coil sound that was a mix between The Cruiser™ and The Chopper™ models.
Enter the Mirage™ Neck. This fully humbucking pickup features a bell-like top end for smoothness and an opened-up bass for balance. Jake also requested slightly more output to keep up with his Mirage™ Bridge pickup, and the result is an unstoppable combo. We even added a satin nickel appearance to complete the muscle car aesthetic of his new guitar.
Although designed for the neck position, this is an excellent bridge pickup where more output is needed when combined with other single coils.
