Overview

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 one of those great pickups that can do clean, but especially dirty and distorted tones very well. It's definitely not a thin, ice-picky, traditional tele-tone, but it still keeps the tele flavor (and to be honest, I've never dug the ice-pick tele thing). One thing I really like about it is how well it plays with the neck pickup...the middle position sounds amazing. Too many higher output type pickups don't play will with other pickups, but this one is an exception to that. Dimarzios customer service is also great, as I called them a couple of times to get some pickup advice. A highly recommended pickup.

Honestly I hate this pick up. Sorry guys. The tone is just blah. No twang at all. No single coil sparkle. Not a bit. About as much output as a PAF. If it sounded like a PAF I could live with it but it doesn't at all. This thing doesn't really have any personality. It's not a humbucker. It's not a single coil. It's definitely doesn't cut through like a Tele should. No sparkle. Very mid heavy but not in a good way. And I like my mids. No definition in the low end. It's kind of flubby. I thought "Hey if Richie Kotzen uses it it must be pretty good right?" Negative. Now I do have the twang king in the neck and I love it. So I'm not just a Dimarzio hater. This thing just left me flat. Bummer man.

          Comments about DiMarzio DP384 Special Chopper Tele Bridge Pickup:

          I've had this pickup for around 5 years now, and it's by far the best pickup I've ever had in a guitar. It's in an Esquired American Standard with the three position wired for Series, split and parallel. Split is a nice single coil tele sound, bright, trebley and a but aggressive. Series is a whole different animal, sounding more like an SG than a Tele when you hook it up to a stack. Highly recommend it and would buy another one in a heartbeat.

              If you want a bit more mids and a less twang this is the one. Did I say no Hum? I use it in an Esquire Series, Parralell and single coil just an awesome pup.

                Comments about DiMarzio DP384 Special Chopper Tele Bridge Pickup:

                I am a guitar shop and one customer was looking for an upgrade to his Tele that would be louder and fatter without the darkness of a super hot pickup. There are few choices for this application and this pickup fit the bill perfectly.

                Would say 5 stars but I'm underqualified

                Comments about DiMarzio DP384 Special Chopper Tele Bridge Pickup:

                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.

                Comments about DiMarzio DP384 Special Chopper Tele Bridge Pickup:

                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!

                For sure the one of the best sounds I've ever gotten from any of my guitars (i have 6)If your a fan of Teles but you want more bite and power from your Tele. buy this pup. No flaws here.
                Love the sound out of this thing! I recently aquired a MIM 94 Telecaster (off the side of the road!) and I put a lot of mods in it including this pickup. One word... amazing!!The sounds i get out of this are awesome. Clean its got that right amount of bite for a grungy clean sound. And distorted this think has enough versitility to cover Rock, Blues, and even Metal.Turned my Tele into a monster.
                No flaws, easy to install.
                Awesome value. this price for a great pickup that should be worth more.
