  • Did DiMarzio change their creme color?

    I just got a new double cream DiMarzio and it looks...browner than my older ones. Am I crazy, or is this a thing?

      The cream (creme?) Strat pickup covers I ordered from them a few years ago are surprisingly dark, at least a couple of shades darker than the cream plastics on my Strat. I should really put on the aged white DiMarzio covers that I bought and still have sitting around.
      Turn that frown upside down. You are among friends here.

        Wait...can Duncan copyright/trademark the new color?!?!?!?!?!?

        I would have someone whose entire job was to make sure that D-bag didn't eff up....

          Good to know I'm not losing my vision or my mind.
          Still, kind of annoying. Doesn't match my neck pickup.
          Ace, I know what you're getting at & I understand the hate (though I don't feel it), but yeah, if you're going to alienate a lot of people by owning double cream, at least keep it in the cream category! This is bordering on dark tan or light brown.

            I don't own a lot of cream DiMarzios, but I took this pic, which shows a 2010-ish EBMM "Axis" pickup alongside a newer set of Air Zone/Tone Zone that have a noticeably darker (browner?) tone to them:
