I am putting together a Tele and have a Dimarzio Chopper that I got a while back that I intend to go in the bridge. I would like something glassy and clear to go in the neck and prefer it not be way off volume wise. I was thinking of trying the Dimarzio Twang King, but I have never tried it. Do any of you have any opinions?
Thanks in advance!

Call DiMarzio, they have great service and a 30-day return policy.
That being said, both the Twang Kings and Area T's get a lot of love around here. The Chopper is a hot pickup, so their may be some volume differential no matter what you choose. The Area T neck is often matched with the Area Hot T bridge, so that might be the best choice. It is hum-cancelling, as well.

I used to have a tele with a chopper in the bridge and a Dimarzio fastrack in the neck. Great combination. I still miss those pups. You'll need to route your pickguard though because its a strat sized pickup.

Thanks for the suggestions. Im actually looking for a hotter single coil, preferably uncovered. Any suggestions? Can be any brand.

DiMarzio, SDS-1 Very hot single coil strat pickup... Maybe they make it in a Tele size?? .
