The DiMarzio DP153 FRED Pickup is for neck and bridge positions - suitable for solid, semi, and hollowbody guitars. DiMarzio FRED humbuckers are like the PAF Pro with more gain, mid EQ, and overtones. The DiMarzio FRED gives you a wide, fat tone with more crank and growl. Also very responsive to picking so you can pick harder to shift from crunch to overdrive. Great for combined lead/rhythm players. In power trios, the FRED pickup helps fill the mix. For straight-in recording, the DiMarzio FRED lets you make the changes from your guitar.

FREDİ is built to bump the mid-range of the PAF Proİ EQ up a notch, but in the process, something unusual happened. Harmonics that humbuckers usually don t reproduce started popping out, particularly with overdriven amps and distortion units. FREDİ has about the same power as the PAF Proİ, but the unusual overtones create a sound with more crank and growl. Joe Satriani was the first player to discover and exploit these qualities, and it s been his main bridge pickup ever since. FREDİ is really sensitive to changes in pick attack and control settings, and its distinctive tone makes a great recorded sound for both penetrating solos and tight rhythm tracks.

The Fredİ started out as a prototype designed to add a little midrange to the PAF Proİ. When we sent one of the first ones to Joe Satriani, he discovered and exploited a unique tonal characteristic - the Fredİ's ability to emphasize upper midrange and treble harmonics through an overdriven and distorted amp. Many standard humbuckers have a tendency to fatten up with distortion. The Fredİ does the opposite; it gets tighter and brighter, much like a single-coil. Joe uses the Fredİ strictly as a bridge pickup, but it's also a distinctive neck pickup - works really well with a Nortonİ, Tone Zoneİ or Evolutionİ bridge model.
