DiMarzio DP172 CHR Twang King

Pickup for T-Style models

The DiMarzio Tele-Twang King brings the classic twang sound that we know and love of the older Fender single coils from Telecaster and Broadcaster. The neck pickup produces bell-like highs and a nice attack, and due to the slightly higher than the original output power, the sound remains warm and round - expect, for example, a blissful blues sound.

Great pickups at a great price
01.03.2017
I bought this as a replacement for the stock pickups on a Mexican Telecaster. Don't get me wrong, the ceramic mexican pickups are fine, but they can be a little harsh and undefined at times.

The twang king neck seems more defined and clear than the stock pickup, but is still reasonably warm sounding. Note separation is good.

Build quality is great, the cover is nice and shiny and all the wiring looks sturdy. The pickup also comes with an earth wire for the cover preinstalled which is a great help for the series wiring mod...however, be careful as this third wire is quite flimsy and can easily be damaged during install. Go easy with the soldering iron!

All in, a good price for a fantastic pickup. Certainly well worth upgrading from the stock pickups.

nice surprise
Haik, 04.07.2021
my Fender telecaster American performer neck pick up died on me... just like that... must be something in the air lately... so i decided to install just the neck pick up... the first thing i found was this dimarzio twang king...
i loved it so much I'm now ordering the bridge pick up as well...to replace the stock pick up (which is still alive btw)... as the sound difference is really huge...
major improvement...

The best neck pickup for a Tele
xtech, 14.03.2018
I was searching for a pickup for a Telecaster that could provide me a step up in sound quality. As i has tried several dimarzios in the past, according to the characteristics of this pickup. I wanted a sensitive pickup which delivered a that "twangy" character but with a fat tone. This pickup just delivers it! The output is not high and will pair with low output bridge pickups. It is a single coil, yes, but if you push it it delivers an amazing breakup tone which is just beautiful. Think of the Hallelujah cover guitar tone of Jeff Buckley.

The tone is balanced, with an small emphasis in the high and mids, will pair greatly with an alder telecaster.

If you have a Tele and you look for this kind of tone, the Twang King neck is a no-brainer and it is worth every penny.
