920D Loaded Pickguard.
'DiMarzio' Transition Neck and Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Lukather and Luke's new LIII Music Man guitar. The pickups are named after Steve s new album, Transition(release date January 21, 2013). Lukather played the LIII guitar with Transition pickups throughout the new record. The passive Transition humbuckers are both subtle and tough. They have power and they have depth. Steve says they re organic, and they allow him to own his sound. These days I like it simple and direct, he shares. The Transition Neck Model performs like a vintage humbucker with a bad attitude. It has punch and edge, and it s fast.
The Transition Neck Model has very good balance between solid bass and glassy treble. The spread between lows and highs creates a big sound that works well for both solos and backup, while the frequency response of the coils is tuned just far enough apart to open up the mids without sounding hollow.
A powerful magnet and coils tuned to slightly different frequencies create very strong fundamental tones, with sustained notes that resolve easily to first- and second-order harmonics. The output rating isn t as high as our loudest models, but the Transition Bridge Model puts a lot of impact into every picked note.
