The DiMarzio DP175S True Velvet is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that's clean and bright. The DP175S pickup also makes your high strings sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet pickup was designed to do this by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. DiMarzio combined this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models of the True Velvet pickup 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 DP175S True Velvet Pickup comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth-covered wire.

My Ibanez RG had INF pickups that all sounded thin and muddy. I put this True Velvet single coil in the middle position and now sounds amazing. This Dimarzio pickup is warm and punchy. I rely on it now for most clean sounds and dirty sounds are great too; very clear. I have a friend that has played Strats for decades and he said it's the best single coil he's ever heard and wants one in his Strat now. You won't be disappointed with this one.
