Light pink Dimarzios

Any ideas on why some dimarzios appear to be light pink while new ones are extremely fluro-pink? Do they just age this way?

Some earlier models we a little less bright, and of course time does take its toll.

Re: Light pink Dimarzios

dimarzio has said they have a hard time sourcing the plastic/plastic dye to make a really consistent pink color.

You will see differences in NIB pink pickups and they do fade over time. It is just a hard color to get consistent.

Re: Light pink Dimarzios

The newer ones I believe are way less fade-prone. That might be why DiMarzio changed the resin they're using. The new ones are also somewhat translucent compared with the old ones.

But you're correct, very old pink pickups like from the late 80's Jems started out as more of a dusty pink color.
