Are DiMarzios Tagged with Stickers now?


I got this DiMarzio Super 3 and on the back of it was a white sticker with "DP152" handwritten on it. So far I've only known DiMarzios to have the DP number engraved on it.
Anyone else get them like this?

hmm...usually the older dimarzios have no model markings.
it's just "dimarzio pickups,made in usa" engraved.
For instance,I have old PAF Pro somewhere in my room,and it has no model label as well.
On "new" models they started to engrave the model markings "DP XXX".

As for the sticker labeling,I dunno nothing about that,haven't seen it so far.
However,that doesn't sound like a good method to me.On that way it will be far easier to manipulate with models.Don't be suprized if you get an air norton instead of tonezone or similar,one day

Re: Are DiMarzios Tagged with Stickers now?


The Super 3 is a new catalog item. They've always made it, but this is the first year that its a normal catalog item. Before this year they we made on a call only basis.
Its possible that some early production ones needed to be hand tagged to make or fill an order. The ones they make for my endorsement are hand tagged also.
If you go to the Super 3 page on the Dimarzio site, you'll hear my sound samples for that particular pup.
God bless,
Kevin

It's not a new catalog item. They just stopped putting it in catalogs. I have two older catalogs where it is featured. It isn't special order either. You could always get it on MF like any other pickup.
This is my 4th Super 3 and I've never seen one with a stickered, handwritten model # on it.

right with ya.
the only new dimarzios i got that were hand written were red air norton, red tone zones. all the others were standard stamp. now, did you have to special order the super3? if you did, they had to custom wind it. thus meaning the sticker. the last super3 i got was in purple...it took a month to get it in due to having custom wind it. it was about a year ago, so i believe it was stamped, but then it has been a year since i dropped it in. i will be ordering a purple fred in the next few months and will know more then.

brand new breed neck DP165. sticker. and the stickers are not even printed like SD. they are written by hand. it looks cheezy after seeing the engraved/stamped method all these years. but i suppose as long as that sticker doesn't fall off it's fine.

Thanks for sharing the info guys! Blucher had told me back in September that they hadn't offered it in the catalog before that it was a "call" item. Crazy.
I do know that of the four pups I just got from them, 2 have hand written stickies on them and the other 2 have nothing on them at all.

No, I got it from a dealer. I've been it contact with DiMarzio. They said they do use stickers occasionally. I was just worried it might not be a real DiMarzio, like a counterfeit.

I just got some DiMarzio single-coils that have stickers instead of being stamped ... but those are printed stickers, not handwritten ones. Looks like it will probably fall off after a few years.

Re: Are DiMarzios Tagged with Stickers now?


I recently puchased a FRED that was also tagged with a DP153 handwritten sticker. I guess it's ok since many of you guys have seen something like that. I too was afraid of counterfeit stuff.

Re: Are DiMarzios Tagged with Stickers now?


I emailed Dimarzio and they say that they sometimes tag the pickups with handwritten stickers, nothing unusual. I guess we can be rest assured now.
