Dimarzio DP417 Area T Neck - Tele
DiMarzio believe the Area ’58™ and Area ’61™ are a major step forward in the performance of humcancelling Strat replacement pickups. The technology that went into these models has allowed us to make a similar advance with Telecaster® replacement pickups. The Area T™ neck model 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 quality or power.

Tech Talk: 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. The Area T™ was designed to work with 250K controls, but treble response and output can be increased by using 500K volume and tone controls or tweaked further with a 250K volume and the EP1202 1 Megohm tone control.
