I cant say anything bad about this pick up. It sounds so good! It makes me want to constantly play my guitar just to hear the tone of it. Best neck tele pick up by far. it is a very versatile pickup, Perfect for blues, chicken pickin country, funk, even jazz! Just roll off some highs with your tone control and you can achieve a pretty convincing hollow body jazz guitar sound. I've installed this pickup to a 2011 american standard tele. I paired the twang king neck with the dimarzio chopper t in the bridge just cuz i like richie kotzen's tone. Boy im so glad i did that cuz what a difference it made to my telecaster. Richie kotzen knows good tone. It sounds so good! I even went further to copy richie kotzen wiring the bridge and neck pickups in series with a push pull pot. The twang king in the neck in series with the chopper gave my tele a hot mid boost. perfect for leads! Awesome pickups.
Just what I was looking for! It's less muddy than the average tele neck pickup. Strat like?.. No. Sounds like a clearer tele pickup lol. This is my first DiMarzio brand pickup. I will be buying more of their pickups in the future. I am completely impressed.
There's a reason there are so many online recommendations of this pickup. Sounds great. Full and deep. Played through a Blues Jr. with just a bit of dirt and the tone shimmers and glistens. Unbelievable that it's priced this low. Makes my MIM Tele sound better than my MIA Strat.
