The DP138 Virtual Acoustic uses the same technology as the Virtual Vintage line to create a guitar pickup that's practically noise-free, even compared to humbuckers. The sound is both warm and open, reproducing the natural dynamics and tonality of steel-string guitars and enabling the Virtual Acoustic pickup to capture the character of the particular electric guitar it's mounted in. Like the Super Natural Plus, the DiMarzio Virtual Acoustic pickup installs easily with foam-insulated mounting brackets, which can be cut down in order to accommodate guitars with smaller soundholes. Twelve adjustable pole pieces allow precise string balance. It also has a volume control with a compensated tone network - to minimize tone changes when the volume is adjusted - and a 12-foot cable.
