The DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that's clean and bright. The True Velvet pickup gives your high strings sweet sound above the 12th fret. The DiMarzio True Velvet was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. DiMarzio combines this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models have the same specs except for reverse wind / reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The bridge pickup is just a touch warmer and louder, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The DiMarzio DP175 single coil pickup comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:
I've had a Fender American Select Stratocaster for 2 years and recently realized how bland the Tex-Mex single coils in the middle and neck were. I replaced both with these True Velvets and it really woke up the guitar. These have a great vintage sound with just the right amount of bite. They also blend well with the Diamondback humbucker in the bridge. I always saw the S-1 switching in this guitar as a novelty, but with the True Velvets, I get some incredible tones using it. These pickups are also much less expensive then the others I was considering.
