The DiMarzio DP384 Special Chopper Tele Bridge Pickup is the louder, punchier brother of the Fast Track T. More power is concentrated in the mids and low end for a bigger sound with more crunch. It shares the same side-by-side coils and twin-blade construction as the Fast Track T, so there are no string alignment or magnet-pull problems. And of course, there's no noise.
Not exactly the traditional Tele bridge sound, the Chopper T has less twang and more chunk. This makes for a solid blues sound. 250K controls (the usual value on most Teles) will produce a warm sound without much high-end bite: 500K controls will open the top end up more and brighten up the low strings as well.

This is the first time I've replaced pickups in a guitar, and I have to say this pickup gave me a new love for my Telecaster. The original bridge pickup (before it broke) was so bright and twangy, I found it unusable for any hard rock situation (which is all I play right now). With this monster in there, I find myself using the bridge pickup most. I paired this with the True Velvet on the neck, and I'm getting great results all around.
First off let me say that I have never played what I would call a 5 star pickup. That being said, I love this pickup. I am jack of trades kind of player, and this pickup suites me well. From blues to thrash metal this thing has you covered. This pickup gives you a nice mid boost that gives a nice raunchy tone. I use a nice bit of mids in my tone, so this pickup is perfect. I don't care for the traditional tele bridge tone, too much high end twang. I am very pleased!
I love this pickup. I put it in my squire telly that I'm rebuilding. The original pickup was so bright and harsh I couldn't stand it. I wanted something that was really bluzzy and this was it. It has awsome tone and great smooth feel...love it
