The Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele includes the Area T Neck and Area T Bridge pickups and includes control plate, knobs and complete wiring harness with solderless installation.

The Area T Bridge does what a great Tele® bridge pickup is supposed to do: the highs sing, the lows snap, and the mids have a punch that's almost unreal. The most instantly obvious quality of the Area T bridge model is dynamics. The Area T tracks changes in pick attack and volume, and it does it instantly. It's also very sensitive to string distance. The volume is very high when the pickup is close to the strings, but can be adjusted much lower by backing the Area T away. String pull is not a problem with the Alnico 2 magnets that are standard on the Area T Bridge.

The Area T Neck has the combination of clarity and warmth that Telecaster® players have always sought, and the new technology allows us to include a vintage Tele® cover with no sacrifice in sound. The contrast between a warm neck pickup tone and a biting bridge pickup sound is a Tele® hallmark, but it's hard to achieve if the neck pickup is muddy. The Area T Neck model has a very smooth tone, but its ability to remain clear even with heavy overdrive is an essential quality of Area design.

    Comments about DiMarzio Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele:

    Very simple solderless design; with the instructions included and the installation video on Dimarzio's website, I was able to install this pickup set correctly on the first try. They sound great! Highly recommended'
    ***the wiring is thin but the connections are solid and don't seem to be at risk to fail, given the way the wires connect. Just an FYI.

    Comments about DiMarzio Area-T Pre-Wired Pickup Set for Tele:

    DiMarzio has the best customer support I've ever experienced. It's what made me become a die-hard fan. All of their products are made in America and wound perfectly every single time. The harmonics are unrivaled and the craftsmanship is always perfectly clean. Packed with all the parts and instructions you'll need, DiMarzio has you set right out of the gate. This Area T set is a winner in every application and will keep me twangin' for years to come. Give it a shot today!
    So you've got a prized Tele and the pickups are giving you ho-hum problems? The DiMarzio Area T set is your ticket to noise-free harmony! DiMarzio has made wiring easier with their simple pre-wired pickup set - so easy, a novice could do it. Grab your Tele and get set to be blown away. These pickups are the best Tele pickups on the market - take it from someone who has tried literally EVERYTHING from the smaller guys to the industry leaders. The Area T neck pickup is the clearest neck pickup around; it has a ton of snap and sparkle but mellows out according to your pick attack. Toss on a pile of dirt - this thing never gets muddy! Beautiful for jazz, blues, country, and even pop/rock. What's that you say? Tired of the icepick in the bridge? The Area T bridge pickup will knock your socks off. It twangs with the best of them but retains enough smoothness to sound absolutely heavenly in any situation. Stomp on a compressor and dash in a light overdrive for crisp leads and Keef-esque grooving. This set is THE answer to your prayers.
    Their quality is out of this world - top notch materials at a price everyone can afford. I've never had issues with a DiMarzio pickup and I'm sure I never will.
    For the price, you can't beat it. DiMarzio has packed everything you need in a super affordable setup. These pickups beat others that cost up to 3 times as much! Save yourself the cost of taking your guitar to a luthier - get this set and be up and running in no time!
