Dimarzio DP216 Mo Joe - Standard Spacing - Black
Joe Satriani has used the Fred® as his main bridge pickup for years. This year 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. It’s name says it all. It has more power than the Fred®, but it doesn’t sacrifice clarity or dynamics. Additionally, all the harmonics that made the Fred so good are all there ready to jump out at the touch a guitar pick. Having more output makes it a perfect match for the PAF Joe™ in the neck position. The combination delivers great versatility and control from rhythms to solos. Recommended for Bridge position, solid and semi hollow body guitars.
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.
