Originally designed as a direct replacement for Gibson® EB series neck pickups, the Model One™ has found new life as a woofer/tweeter in multipickup bass setups. By combining the Model One™ with Split P™, DiMarzio Model P®, or DiMarzio Model J™ pickups, you can effectively turn your bass into a woofer/tweeter setup with on-board control of sonic extremes. By sending the Model One™ to a rig with an 18-inch speaker cabinet and plugging the other pickup’s output into your regular gear, you have the makings of a sound with earth-moving bottom and crisp, transparent high-end. What’s that sound like? Check out Billy Sheehan. It’s the monstrous sound he’s pioneered that’s made Rock shake for years.
Neck position, narrow string spacing.
Warm, full tone, no mud. For maximum high-end response, try 500K controls. For even brighter and cleaner sound, try switching the coils from series to parallel: the volume drops a bit, but the midrange really opens up and acquires a more acoustic quality.
Wiring: 4 Conductor
Output mV: 200
DC Resistance: 11.31 Kohm
Year of Introduction: 1976
