Gravity Storm™ Neck & Bridge Model humbuckers were designed for Steve Vai, and he has used them since their 2012 introduction. Steve is always a master of creativity, looking to extend the boundaries with his music and art. In that spirit of inventiveness, Steve worked with DiMarzio to design two Special Edition pickup covers for the Gravity Storm™ pickups.
The Velorum™ Neck & Bridge pickup covers depict Steve’s custom Vai logo etched into a polished gold cover and nestled in a burst of lines radiating out from the logo.
The Velorum™ Neck Model is available in F-spacing only.
Most neck humbuckers don’t do a great job at reproducing pick harmonics, especially if they have a warm sound. This one’s different, particularly with 24-fret guitars. The combination of fat neck position tone with harmonics is something we haven’t often encountered before. It has a throaty quality that sounds like a cross between a humbucker and a single-coil.
