A Super Distortion® in a P90 cover? Cool! DiMarzio’s Super Distortion® has been the industry standard since its introduction in the early 70s. The new P90 Super Distortion™ is our highest-output humbucking “soapbar” replacement, and it gives players with guitars routed for P90-style pickups the ability to upgrade their pickups without any modification to the guitar. Like the original Super Distortion®, it has 12 adjustable pole pieces and 4-conductor wiring for split and parallel humbucking modes.

Because of its slightly different coil architecture, the P90 Super Distortion® has a little smoother treble response than the original, which you'll hear mostly at the higher frets. Like the original Super Distortion®, the P90 version was intended primarily for use in the bridge position. It can also be used in the neck position, where you'll get the best results with most amplifiers' clean or moderate-gain channels. Parallel and split wiring drop the volume and increase treble response, and these modes are equally useful in any position. Not available in a "dog-ear" version.
