Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

Great upgrade pup for Squier Telecaster Butterscotch Blonde, the existing pup not much punch or volume. The True Velvet neck has great volume and punch with no distortion giving familiar Tele sound. Perfect compliment for the Squier which is a nice axe from quality wood actually. The True Velvet neck is what you are looking for. Adjusting the bridge pup - you can actually lower this neck pup a bit for volume balance output to blend nicely when using both. The existing bridge pup has a bit of a overdriven screamer type distortion in the high coils (high e,b,g). I prefer clean over driven sound and distortion is optional when desired with pedals etc. Lower quality "hot" pups are usually that cheap distortion screamers. Yuck! I will try apparently their compliment bridge pup as well (DiMarzio DP178 True Velvet T Bridge Pickup) because many times the manufacturer uses lesser value pups with quality wood and workmanship guitars for competitive pricing. You want that hotter neck Tele pup that is very clean without distortion producing that great Tele sound and this is the neck pup you are looking for. No hum! You'll notice the clean volume jump immediately.

Great replacement for OEM hardware

By Jeremy Ross

from NY.

Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

I was a little skeptical replacing my neck pickup with one other that the one that came with the guitar, for a fear of changing the tone of the guitar and losing that very nice Tele sound. My original neck pickup got very noisey. I replaced this and matched the wiring colour coding and found the pickups were out of phase (the sound when the switch is set to the middle completely dragged the sound down)a quick phone call to DiMarzio remedied the situation, by just switching the wires around and put the new pickup in phase with the bridge. It sounds awesome, no more noise and the neck sound rounder deeper on the top E,A,D strings and brighter on the higher strings G,B,E. The overall sound of the guitar is much clearer and cleaner. This is one of those upgrades that improved my guitars sound. Definitely recommend this pickup.

Absolutely love it

By Brett Arnold

from O'Fallon, MO

Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

This was the first time I had ever put new pickups in my guitar, so I can't rightfully give this 5 stars, but I can't say how much I love this pickup. It gave new life to my playing. The pickups that were in it decided to get messed up so I had to get a new set, and I can't say I could've made a better decision.

Greaat Sound

By JOSE LUIS GONZALEZ JIMENEZ

from Mcallen TX

Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

With a nice broadcaster alike sound id recomend this pickup for a real full bodied telecaster sound, like i say better sound than others boutique pickups i bought for a way less money,(just one more thing, guitarcenter only offers in unfinished look ),if you really want a cool set buy the full telecaster set.

Amazing Pickup

By Rob

from NJ

Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

Outstanding! Talk about tone... this is the beefiest pickup i think i've ever used. I would highly recommend this to anyone. It maintains the classic tele twang and injects a monster dose of output and a shot of low end while remaining super clear with no mud or tin. Sounds great with heavy distortion but i think this thing really shines with a clean or slightly overdriven tone (think Devin Townsend's "Ki" album)

DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup

By Mike

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup:

Beautiful clean sounds used solo. Strat like quacky sounds (though less pronounced) when switched in with my DiMarzio Twang King bridge pup. Extremely pleased with both DiMarzio products.
