The Definitive Tele Bridge Pickup

The DiMarzio DP173 Twang King Telecaster Bridge Pickup is amazing. When DiMarzio set out to design a pickup that delivers stunning vintage Tele sound, they knew they had to go beyond merely copying a 40-year-old design. Sporting controlled-tension coil winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets, from ppp to fff, the Twang King serves up pick-attack response like you've never experienced in a single-coil. Of course, the Twang King is wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance. If you're a Tele twanger, get the bridge pickup that nails it: DiMarzio's DP173 Twang King.

DiMarzio DP173 Twang King Telecaster Bridge Pickup Features at a Glance:

  • Cleans up with soft picking and really open up with a harder attack
  • Alnico 5 magnet; 2-conductor wiring
  • Output: 198mV; DC resistance: 8.07Kohm

great Tele upgrade

I put this, along with the matching neck pup & a Fender tortoise shell pickguard on a Squier Classic Vibe Tele that was given to me, and this set really improves the sound. I can't say what it would do for a Fender Tele, but it makes my Squier come to life...
