Vintage Tele Tone

Hot rod your guitar with the DiMarzio DP172 Twang King electric guitar neck pickup. Designed to deliver vintage Tele tones, the Twang King gives your guitar the spank and snap you want and need. This pickup is ultra-responsive to your pick attack. Light playing gives you a smooth, soft tone. When you start hitting the pickup hard, it's louder and more dynamic than regular single-coil pickups. DiMarzio took great care in the design of the DP172 Twang King: controlled-tension windings, hand-calibrated magnets, special wire, and double wax potting ensure a great pickup with killer tone. If you want your guitar to sing like a pro, then you need the DiMarzio DP172 Twang King electric guitar neck pickup.

DiMarzio guitar pickups give you the tone and output you need to get the most out of your guitar. Dozens of guitar legends have used DiMarzio pickups in their prized instruments, from Joe Satriani and Steve Vai to David Gilmour and Eric Johnson, Jerry Garcia to John Petrucci — the list goes on and on. Ever since the introduction of the Super Distortion humbucker in the early 1970s, players have relied on DiMarzio for a range of replacement pickups that suit their needs best. Take your axe to the next level with DiMarzio!

Hot Pickup!

Very impressed with the tones I am able to achieve with this pickup. It's brighter and Has more twang then I had imagined. I'm very happy with the results!
5/5

great Tele upgrade

I put this & the matching bridge pup along with a Fender tortoise-shell pickguard on a Squier Classic Vibe Tele that was given to me, and it really punched up the sound, in every way. This Tele comes stock with a neck pup that is NOT height-adjustable, & the pickguard upgrade is predrilled for height- adjusting screws, which come with the DiMarzio DP172, enhancing the sound improvement. I can't say how it would improve a Fender Tele, but it brought my Squier to life...
