DiMarzio DP177 True Velvet Tele Neck Pickup
Dimarzio's True Velvet T Neck (DP177) is a vintage-style Telecaster neck pickup. Like its cousin, the Twang King, it employs controlled-tension coil-winding, and hand-calibrated magnets. In addition to these features, it is wax-potted not once, but twice to eliminate squealing at high volumes. This is ideal for players who want that vintage tone, but do like to use a lot of gain (and or play loud). The tone is uber-smooth and very big. Experienced players will notice a particularly tight and articulate low-end that does not get mushy. Dimarzio is primarily known for making more modern, and hum-canceling pickups, but they certainly do vintage quite well.
