Overview

The Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele includes the Area T Neck and Area T Bridge pickups and includes control plate, knobs and complete wiring harness with solderless installation.

The Area T Bridge does what a great Tele bridge pickup is supposed to do: the highs sing, the lows snap, and the mids have a punch that's almost unreal. The most instantly obvious quality of the Area T bridge model is dynamics. The Area T tracks changes in pick attack and volume, and it does it instantly. It's also very sensitive to string distance. The volume is very high when the pickup is close to the strings, but can be adjusted much lower by backing the Area T away. String pull is not a problem with the Alnico 2 magnets that are standard on the Area T Bridge.

The Area T Neck has the combination of clarity and warmth that Telecaster players have always sought, and the new technology allows us to include a vintage Tele cover with no sacrifice in sound. The contrast between a warm neck pickup tone and a biting bridge pickup sound is a Tele hallmark, but it's hard to achieve if the neck pickup is muddy. The Area T Neck model has a very smooth tone, but its ability to remain clear even with heavy overdrive is an essential quality of Area design.

Solid Choice

By Dan the Musci Man

Comments about DiMarzio Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele:

Easy to install, just follow the instructions provided. No soldering required, a plus. You get everything you need to slide in the new set. I put this set on a Mexican Fender Tele. Huge difference in sound! Not much twang in it though, just clean sharp Tele sound. I tried different type of strings and here is what I discovered: thinner gage will bring up some twang out of the pups, and ofcourse the sound is sharper. I decided to go with Purpule Slinkies for a thicker, warmer sound...and Yes, I got it! This Dimarzio set rocks, but is also apropriate for country. You get the best of both worlds. Very impressed with the bridge pick up. I tried it through different amps, etc and it delivers. Bottom line, a solid choice for any style. Highly recommended. There is also a Youtube video clip guiding you through the process, and some sound samples. Check it out.

Love the Area T's!

Comments about Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele:

Easy to install and sound fantastic!
I replaced the stock Twisted Tele pickups that came on my 2012 American Standard Tele.
The original Twisted Tele's were very noisy and the bridge PU did not have the expected "twang".

These Things sound great

Comments about DiMarzio Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele:

I put a set of pre-wired areas in one of my strats, & I couldn't have been happier. I put these in a made in mexico tele, & I swear this guitar sounds like it cost 4 times what I paid for it. Any sound you want, you can get. Highly recommend.
