Why do so many players love the old “soapbar” pickup? Probably because it’s the friendliest sounding single-coil ever. High notes are always fat, with just enough bite to cut through the mix. Low notes are bright, but not thin, and the tone stays even — all the way up the neck. DiMarzio's version of this classic pickup also punches up the mids and tightens up the lows. The DiMarzio Soapbar™ comes in “soapbar” and “dog-ear” versions. The cover is included.

They didn't do it just to be different — their pickup's magnetic field won't weaken with age, so the sound won't change in time.
