Description Technical Specs

Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13™ guitar, the new Illuminator™ Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio.

John says he looks for versatility in his pickups so that he’s able to span a multitude of different sounds within one guitar, going from massive overdrive, very tight, rhythmical and aggressive to “more expressive, dynamic and very liquid” when he plays solos. They’re a bit bold — with more of the clarity and presence that John demands.

John used the new Illuminator™ and Illuminator 7™ pickups during the recording of Dream Theater’s upcoming self-titled album. The album will be available September 24, 2013 on Roadrunner Records.

Tech Talk:
John wants his neck and bridge pickups to occupy separate musical spaces that “speak” to each other, with individual voices that both blend and stand on their own.

The Illuminator™ Neck Model is louder than a typical vintage humbucker, and it has more headroom and a wide-frequency bandwidth.

It has a lot of clarity with a clean amp, and warmth without muddiness with heavy overdrive.
