OVERVIEW

Max out the attitude factor on any axe.

The Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker is the pickup so loud it refused to be silenced. The Dirty Fingers humbucker has returned after a 20-year absence to once again deliver the critical union between power and dirt. These Gibson bridge-only pickups are extreme-output units designed for more of everything. Much more clarity with way more volume than a traditional humbucker and an incredible, aggressive, wide response. The Gibson Dirty Fingers pickup comes with a 4-conductor lead and is wax-potted to eliminate unwanted microphonic feedback.

  • Bridge-only

These came standard in the Gibson 70's tribute Les Paul I just bought, and I did not know what to expect. My favorite pickup of all time is the Seymour Duncan JB, which I have in three of my guitars. Well this Dirty Fingers pickup is actually better. I think it has about the same great tone as the JB, but more output. For rock, punk, metal, it is a perfect pickup.

This pickup has got more character then any other pickup I've ever tried. Its truly unique and VERY cool. This pickup has SERIOUS guts and will make your guitar very loud and very punctual. Its got to be one of the clearest sounding pickups I've ever heard. Problem for me is just that its TOO hot.I installed it in a 2001 Gibson Flying V SE model replacing a 57' classic pickup in the bridge position. I was looking for a hotter pickup and was thinking of replacing it with a 498t which sounds awesome in my 95 LP Standard. I then saw the add for the Dirty Fingers pickup, read the rave reviews, and decided to give a try. Sounds killer..very EVH sounding in my guitar, almost to the point of a super hot single coil pickup. Unfortunately the tone wasn't for me and I have decided to return to my original plan with the 498t. If you want a very clear hot pickup with better tonal quality then the Duncan Invader, this is the one to get, but be prepared for a TOTAL sonic assault..my ears are STILL ringing!

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    A few years back my buddy gave me this pickup from his old flying V (yup, I have an original) and I put it on my Epiphone SG. This pickups rules!!! It's so hot without sounding annoying. The crunch on this thing is so biting and tight. In my opinion it's just as good, if not better, than anything EMG makes. If you want that sound without losing character then get this pickup.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    This pickup has totaly changed my SG. The sound is amazing when played clean with very crisp clear sound with a lot of punch. Distorted it is so powerfull I had to turn the gain down which makes the notes and picking attack come alive. Very good pickup for those who want bark and bite.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    For the young players who may not know, the original Dirty Fingers came stock on most of the Gibson Explorers and Flying V's in the early to mid 80's. They are responsible for some of the best rhythm (and to a lesser extent, lead) tones ever heard in hard rock. Listen to Accept's "Balls To The Wall" album, or any of the Scorpions early albums and you'll hear for yourself. These pickups will make you feel like a man...even if you're female. Which may be a good or bad thing, but the point being they are incredible.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    I recently purchased these and wired them to my es-333, I've ran them through a mesa dual rectifier and mesa cab and a marshall. The coolest sound ever! The clarity and tone is deep and incredible. If your thinking about a deep, BIG tone and DIRTy sound the pickups can't be further described.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    I purchased this pickup to go into my Jackson JS30RR and it sounds like a million bucks. Every gig I play I get complimented on the sound of my guitar. I played with a guy the other day that has a 69 Les Paul and after we played for 3 and a half hours he went out and bought him one just like mine and put the same pic ups in it (if that tells you something). I would have my Jackson over a Les Paul any day.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    I have this pick-up on an es-335 and I'm am utterly disappointed with it, it sounds utterly awful clean and it just isn't THAT amazing when you're looking for a punchy sound.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    need to bring the life to an epi les paul and took a chance on the dirty fingers. man what a great idea. this thing just really lights it up. if the name of your game is distortion that this is the pickup for you. it also isnt just a bunch of noise its a very smooth round sound that cleans up nice. also sounds well coil taped for that hendrix style. i also have a pearly gates and it dosnt come close to this in my opinion.
