DiMarzio first heard about Paul Gilbert in the 1980s. Billy Sheehan told DiMarzio about an amazing 18-year-old who had recently arrived in California and had blown everyone away with his musicianship, speed, and awesome technical ability in Racer X. Naturally, DiMarzio immediately asked Paul to become a DiMarzio endorser. It was the start of a great relationship.
Recently, Paul has been heavily into DiMarzio's Area pickups. He’s also been playing a lot of Racer X-style instrumentals, so the time was right for signature Paul Gilbert single-coil sized DiMarzio® pickups. The outcome of their teamwork is the new Injector Neck and Bridge Model pickups. You can hear them on Paul’s latest CD, “Fuzz Universe”.
