We prove that self-similar measures on the real line are absolutely continuous for almost all parameters in the super-critical region, in particular confirming a conjecture of S.-M. Ngai and Y. Wang. While recently there has been much progress in understanding absolute continuity for homogeneous self-similar measures, this is the first improvement over the classical transversality method in the general (non-homogeneous) case. In the course of the proof, we establish new results on the dimension and Fourier decay of a class of random self-similar measures.
