DiMarzio Launches the Steve Vai Signature UtoPIA Blue Powder Pickup

Designed for Steve Vai’s signature Ibanez PIA guitar, the UtoPIA Neck pickup features a custom laser-cut baroque style cover over a gold patterned layer.


Using the Evolution Neck as the basic platform, the UtoPIA Neck was designed to focus more on the low-end response of the guitar while adding thickness and body to the top end. The challenge was to still deliver the harmonics for which the Evolution is known. Upper mid-range frequencies were also dialed back to produce a less aggressive attack and provide more control.

Designed to be a perfect choice for bright guitars that favor an upper mid-range peak, the UtoPIA Neck will level out uneven frequencies. Great for coil-splitting in combination with the UtoPIA Middle. The UtoPIA Neck is also a great choice for the bridge position when looking for something to balance with a lower output neck pickup.

Available in F-spacing only.
