The Super Distortion® T offers the performance of the famous Super Distortion® in humbucking Tele® bridge direct replacement-size pickups. DiMarzio built in the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super Distortion® the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers. They also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion® T will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. Like the full-size version, the Super Distortion® T has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes.
Since the Super Distortion® T will be installed in the slanted bridge position of a 25 1/2" scale guitar, DiMarzio adjusted the specs from the original Super Distortion® humbuckers to compensate. Treble response is smoother, and bass response is tighter. Because of their narrow magnetic fields, dual-blade Tele® replacements are not generally well-known for their splitting ability. However, the Super Distortion® S has a very good single-coil sound in split mode that isn't brittle or weak.
