Harmonize your pickups to receive True Velvet sound by screwing this prewired pickguard into your Strat.

Drop this DiMarzio prewired pickguard into your Stratocaster to receive the benefits of a three-ply-thick pickguard with a built-in volume knob, 2 separate tone knobs, a 5-way "blade" pickup selector, and the impeccable tone quality offered by three distinct DiMarzio True Velvet guitar pickups.

Neck Pickup: True Velvet Neck DP175
It's not difficult to make a vintage single-coil pickup that's clean and bright, but not so easy if you also want the high strings to sound sweet above the 12th fret. The True Velvet Neck model was designed to make this happen by tuning the coil to a frequency range that's bright but not thin. This pickup features a magnet stagger specifically designed to enhance string balance, which produces great clarity, even with full chords. The True Velvet Neck model comes standard with hand-ground magnets and vintage cloth covered wire.

Middle Pickup: True Velvet Middle DP175S
The neck and middle pickups have the same specifications except for reverse polarity on the middle pickup for hum cancellation in the 2 and 4 positions.

Bridge Pickup: True Velvet Bridge DP176
The True Velvet Bridge is just a touch warmer and louder than the Neck and Middle, so the transition between pickup positions is smooth and natural.

  • 3 pre-wired True Velvet pickups
  • 250kOhms volume knob
  • 250kOhms neck tone knob
