The DP407 a neck pickup, but this is DiMarzio's basic workhorse VirtuAL 2 model. It's got everything a great Strat pickup should have: singing highs, bright punchy lows and a sensation of "air" in the sound that lets you know your strings are really vibrating. It's a great neck or middle pickup for any Strat, and goes well in the bridge position of warmer-sounding guitars with alder bodies and rosewood fingerboards. Try this in the bridge position with a Virtual Vintage 2.1 (neck) and a Virtual Vintage 2.2 (middle), and you've got a perfectly balanced, noise-free classic set.
Highly recommended for neck position on all Strats with light strings, high-gain amps and/or distortion pedals. Also effective in middle and bridge positions for classic Strat sound.
Tech Talk: Although Alnico 2 has much less magnetic strength than Alnico 5, the VirtuAL 2 is not weaker than standard Alnico 5-equipped pickups. Actually, the VirtuAL 2® has more useable power because it can be adjusted closer to the strings with no ill effects. This quality also allows the VirtuAL 2 to be combined easily with all other Virtual Vintage models.
