Designed for John Petrucci’s Music Man JP13™ guitar, the new Illuminator™ Neck and Bridge Models are the next generation in John’s signature pickups with DiMarzio. John says he looks for versatility in his pickups so that he’s able to span a multitude of different sounds within one guitar, going from massive overdrive, very tight, rhythmical and aggressive to “more expressive, dynamic and very liquid” when he plays solos. They’re a bit bold — with more of the clarity and presence that John demands.

John used the Illuminator™ and Illuminator 7™pickups during the recording of Dream Theater’s self-titled album, released September 24, 2013. 


In keeping with John's desire to increase the difference between neck and bridge pickup sounds, the Illuminator™ Bridge Model does three things: it increases midrange punch, bumps the highs up a notch, and tightens the lows. The sound jumps from the speakers when the strings are picked hard, and the low strings don't get blurry with an overdriven amp.
