I've been perusing this topic with some degree of amazement. I've been a DiMarzio proponent for decades; their pickups sound like they say they do, and their service has been stellar, the few times I've had to call. I've talked to both Steve and Larry, and both were very accommodating and friendly, and took care of issues immediately. But it seemed every time I brought them up in conversation, people were completely close-minded about trying them, even to the point of complaining they'd never buy them because they trademarked a colour (!). @#$% that; they sound bloody great. The original aftermarket pickup, the Super Distortion, is still one of the best. And they have an ear for what sounds good.
And I'm not on their artist roster, nor am I affiliated in any way except as a satisfied customer.
This^^^ It cracks me up when people get all torqued up about the trademark. I see it as a smart business move. They make fantastic sounding pickups. Customer service is one of the best.
