    Gravity says yes.



    Sorry, couldnít help myself.

    Looking at my Wolfgang and AX40D (loaded with Dimarzioís) I would say it should be a pretty close drop-in fit. The Dimarzio has triangular feet/tabs, whereas the Wolfgang has rounded feet/tabs.... but it looks like thereís enough room in the routing for the tabs on the Wolfgang . You might have to file a teeny bit at the apex of the foot routing, but it looks like it might not need it.

    The problem isnít the feet - itís the baseplate. I believe DiMarzio base plates are more square than the EVH route is.

    Ah... yes indeed! Just took a look at that and youíre correct!

    If it were me - I would opt for reshaping the squared corners of baseplate of the Dimarzio (rounding them to match the bobbin shape) vs messing with the actual pickup route of the Wolfgang.

    You can swap a Wolfgang back plate onto a normal pickup and itís very easy. You take out the 4 screws, peel the tape back, and unsolder the one wire on the baseplate, do the same to the Wolfgang pickup and swap them. Iíve been messing with a few pickups on my own swapping base plates and putting different magnets in, they are very simple and not hard to work with.

    I have been thinking about this on the cheaper Wolfgang I have...I want to put Pariah Poundcake Pups in it.

    On another note I had an email exchange with Pariah and if you order and put in the notes that the pups will be going in a Wolfgang they will round the tabs for a drop in replacement for free.

    Thought that was cool...I have been watching a few vids and reading about them so likely to give them a shot...plus they are like 15m from my house.

    I've spoken about them before, but yeah man, huge vote of confidence in Pariah. Sean's a great guy and I've been thrilled with all the pickups I've gotten from him.
