Elite Telecaster Pickup Swap

So, I replaced the n4 noiseless pickups in my Elite Telecaster with DiMarzios (Twang King in the neck and True Velvet in the bridge).

I liked the noiseless- I thought they sounded nice, but just a little too polite. They didn't have the grunt that I was used to with telecasters- I guess I could've messed with the height a little more than I did, but I guess I just wanted to tinker with it a little and make it more my own.

Took a chance on these DiMarzios and, boy oh boy, why aren't these things talked about more? Cheap and really great sounding.

It might possibly be that there are more players who prefer the single coils pickups to humcancelling or noiseless single coil type pickups.

I hav gotten to the point where I want noiseless pickups, and have for some time, when I play single coil style guitars. The 60 cycle hum adds nothing to the musicality of the guitar, and the noise is not tolerated well in a session.

I never met a noiseless tele pickup I liked.

Sounds like you fixed the only thing wrong with that really nice guitar!
