DiMarzio question

Does anyone know the ceramic equivalent of the Tone Zone? I LOVE that pickup, and wanted to try one with that ceramic bite

Just load the TZ up with a ceramic magnet! Sounds great, and is easy to do! I've got a video showing you how to do it on my blog and YouTube.

Otherwise the IBZ/USA F2 is very close as well. It has a ceramic magnet stock.

I've done the half air mod. I think that mixed with a ceramic magnet would be choice. Any idea where I can get a ceramic magnet?

The Super 3 sounds close IMO.

Got any spare old OEM pickups that were loaded with ceramic magnets? Otherwise e-Bay it. There's a guy on e-Bay that sells pickup components.
