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.

FEATURES
  • Bridge-only
  • Extreme-output
  • More clarity
  • More volume
  • Aggressive, wide response
  • 4-conductor lead

Going for the hottest, dirtiest sound around? This is the only pickup to consider. Order now!

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:

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:

    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.

    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:

    I did some research on gibsons pickups and found that this had the hottest output of them all. I needed that output for some of the punk I play. I dropped it into my joan jett melody maker and I play through a marshall half stack(how all gibsons guitars should be hooked up). The overall sound u get out of this is just dazzling. Endless crunch on the low end. As for the high end not so much. It suits my playing very well mainly because I play rythm. It's very versatile.

    Great Pickup

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    I recently had this baby put into my Epiphone Les Paul studio and it sounds great. Its clear, punchy and makes my stock pickups look bad. I play punk somewhat in the style of social distortion and this pickup does the trick. I use it on a Peavey Windsor with a boss ds-1 and it creats amazing tone. I recommend this to someone who wants a bare bones punchy, clear pickup with no frills

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    This is the perfect bridge pickup for darn near every style of music. I've been playing guitar for over 43 years (that's not my age, it's the amount of actual years I've been playing the guitar) and I've played them all. Recently I bought a Gibson SG faded. The bridge pickup turned out to be a 490T, not a 498T. (The 490T pickup is worthless as a bridge pickup, but might be usefull as a neck pick) I decided to replace it with a Dirty Fingers instead of the 498T because I already have that setup in my Les Paul. I'm so glad I went with the Dirty Fingers!!! It's very easy to install and worth 10X what I paid for it. It puts my new faded SG in a class by itself. Before I replaced the 490T pickup with the Dirty Fingers pickup this Gibson faded SG wasn't worth hanging on the wall, let alone taking it on the road with me.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    I heard about these pickups a while back. I knew Tom Delonge used them in his gibson and I love the way his guitar sounds so I figured why not try em in my SG faded. Let me tell you this bad boy will shake your pants off. It's pretty intense. Amazing distortion quality. You can hear every note. Pinches will make you wanna cry. If your thinking of a great bridge pickup. If you have the cash buy it. It won't let you down.

    Comments about Gibson Dirty Fingers Humbucker Pickup:

    This s great pick up! Great tone! But I bought it expecting more output. I was told it had the highest output of any passives he had heard. Turns out the invader I swaped it for was higher gain...nonetheless I love it and its perfect.
