DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Neck Pickup, Chrome
DiMarzio DP172 Twang King Neck: when DiMarzio decided to go for the vintage Tele sound, they knew they had to do more than just copy a forty-year-old design. They wanted pickups that captured the best elements of our favorite Broadcaster and Telecaster sounds – and then some. The Twang King pickups have unequalled response to pick attack: light playing produces a soft, quiet tone and hard picking creates a harder, louder, and more dynamic sound than any comparable single-coil. They accomplished this with a combination of controlled-tension coil-winding, special wire, and hand-calibrated magnets. The neck pickup comes with a chrome cover, and the bridge model has a ferrous base plate. Both pickups are wax-potted twice for squeal-free performance.

Really like the tone of this pickup, sooo much better than my stock Affinity Tele.
It gives you a more rounded Strat tone, yet cleans up nicely and still allows the Tele Twang when you roll the volume back
