Dimarzio pickups for a modified tele


New member
I just mostly have a question of my pickups choices balancing out with each other. I'm going to be building a telecaster (birdseye maple neck/fretboard and alder body). I currently have these pickups in mind for it: Virtual Hot T (tele, bridge), Virtual Vintage Blues (strat, middle), and Air Norton (humbucker, neck). My question is: has anyone ever tried any combination of these and did they even out in output or was one too powerful to work with the others? I was also thinking Humbucker from hell in the neck, but I want the classic chrome pickup cover look and I don't know how it would fare with a cover. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

As another option maybe try the very beefy sounding Rio Grande Dirty Harry for tele. Keeps the original looks to. Check out my flame maple tele build in the tele section.
