Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The DP100 (F-spaced) appeared on our recommended list for Budget Guitar Pickups in 3 consecutive editions from the first one from November 2017 until November 2021.


The DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion (F-spaced) was one of the first aftermarket pickups launched, arguably paving the way for all of the pickups that came after.

It was also one of the first aftermarket high-output pickups available, which led to its widespread adoption among rock and metal guitarists.

Even today it still has a relatively high output, so it’s still a great choice if you’re looking for great hard rock and metal tones.

This is for the f-spaced version and is suited for installation in Fender-spaced (hence the name) bridges. This includes Floyd Rose and other floating bridges. The standard spaced DP100 is for the narrower Gibson spacing.


  • Position: Bridge (Recommended)
  • Magnet Material: Ceramic
  • Dimensions: 2.7" x 1.5" x 0.663"
  • String Spacing: 51 mm
  • Available Colors/Covers: 26 Available
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Budget Guitar Pickups.
