According to Dimarzio, A super II was supposed to sound a lot like a regular Super Distortion in the bridge position. The Super II is about 8.6K resistance while the Regular Super Distortion is about 13K. The super II is wound to accentuate the highs while the mids and lows are about mid level in power. A split super II in the middle position of a solid wood guitar sounds like Jerry, period or like a strat single coil without the hum. The regular super distortion use to be made with 2 conductors while the super II had 4. Now they are both made with 4. My new Jerry caster neck through is going to have a super distortion in the bridge, a super II in the middle and an Eric Johnson custom (bridge) (EJ Custom) for the neck. I am really excited to hear the out come. I am sick of having no power in my bridge position, is one issue, but I can't wait to see how the EJ custom works out compared to a super II. its tonally similar but it has AlNico magnets and a tad less resistance. Either way those are all great tried and true pickups.
I have been super happy with the 36th anniversary PAF's, I am hoping the more treble response in a PAF foundation with the EJ custom will be like a super II mixed with an alnico PAF. This may be my ultimate pickup ever created.
Maybe not......I hope so though.
