    Question JP16: DiMarzio Sonic Ecstasy pickups?

    Hi folks,

    I noticed that the JP16 page has the DiMarzio Sonic Ecstasy pickups in the specs.

    Is this a typo or something new/unannounced?

    I wonder what the differences are between those and JP's other signature lines.

    Hey! Just got back from warped tour and I visited the EBMM booth. One of the guys there shot a text message to a sales guy back in Cali. The info he back was that these new sonic ecstasy pickups are a beefier Illuminator. They were voiced specifically for the JP16 because of its Basswood/Floyd Rose combo. So less top end and more lows is what I was told. Sounds like it'll be a badass pickup.

    Thanks for the info!
    Interesting, I'm looking forward to those pickups. I'd like to try them in the JP6.

    Petrucci and Dimarzio always come up with the coolest names for pickups.

    Drove over to Bass Central and played a JP16-7. Sound wise I don't think it's worlds apart from a Majesty. I played both back to back and there's slightly more low mid/bass in the 16. Cool guitar none the less.

    I have heard something to the effect that they are retooled Illuminators that compensate for the extra brightness that comes with a Floyd Rose bridge. In other words, should sound very similar to the Illuminators. I just bought a JP16 from Pete Dubaldo and will have it Tuesday, looking forward to flying them off against each other.
