DiMarzio Illuminator F-Spaced Neck & Bridge Set featured in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the August issue of the magazine features a review of the Illuminator F-Spaced Neck & Bridge electric guitar pickups set from DiMarzio. TopGuitar’s gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski performed a test of the product and wrote a short review, summing it up as follows:

“Both the DP256 (neck) and DP257 (bridge) Illuminator models are based on ceramic magnets, but the level of their output signal differs significantly. Add to this a varying tonal characteristic (with the bridge being more balanced, neck having more midrange and low end) and what you get is a pair of humbuckers that perfectly complement each other, showing two different faces of the same guitar.”

The pickups were sent for review by official DiMarzio ditributor in Europe, Sound Service.

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
