The DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet is a vintage-style single-coil pickup that's clean and bright. The True Velvet pickup gives your high strings sweet sound above the 12th fret. The DiMarzio True Velvet was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. DiMarzio combines this with a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The neck and middle models have the same specs except for reverse wind / reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions. The bridge pickup is just a touch warmer and louder, so the transition between pickup positions is very smooth and natural. The DiMarzio DP175 single coil pickup comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

    Strat neck pickups are hard to make sound good, the DP 175 True Velvet Neck is specifically tuned and calibrated to eliminate the thin, brittle tone of most strat neck pups and this one sings and comes to life for those gutsy blues strat tones. Installed in 30 minutes

        Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

        This pickup sounds very similar to a Seymour Duncan SSL-1. Which means it has slightly more lower end, alot more midrange, and is not as edgey as a vintage. The set of three True velvets as a whole are more piano like than edgey sounding. They also are heavy in the UPPER midrange frequencies so they don't contain those shimmery highs but are more solo oriented. Lastly the beveled ends are alot nicer than the picture shows and the modern stagger sounds very similar to vintage. The neck spacing is the regular Fender spacing that does not match the string spacing but this stagger picks up the top B,E better than other with the G still in your face like vintage stagger.

            I bought the True Velvet neck and middle to go in a HSS strat set with a PAF Pro bridge pickup. The whole set balances pretty well and sounds killer. The True Velvets are a pretty fat pickup without the usual strat sharp high end so overall they are a little darker pickup. Plenty of output and with some height adjustment your sound is what you want. Definitely would buy again and you can be DiMarzio on value!

              Comments about DiMarzio DP175 True Velvet Single Coil Electric Guitar Neck Pickup:

              Good sounding pickup for the money. Nice full sound. A little hum, but better than the ones I replaced. Sound is crystal clear and a big improvement over my original pickups. Definitely worth the money to improve a practice guitar. I would probably go higher end on a professional guitar, but these are good for practice and recording demos.
