Get Yer Fingers Dirty with This Pickup!

Gibson's Strings & Original Equipment division offers the extreme-output Dirty Fingers bridge pickups as replacement units that will max out the attitude factor on any electric guitar. Once described in Gibson Guitar literature as "The critical union between power and dirt," the Dirty Fingers has returned after a 20-year silence on the Tom DeLonge Signature model.

DeLonge, frontman for alt-punk group blink-182, was given some sample pickups to spec for his signature model and he chose the Dirty Fingers. "The Dirty Fingers was so loud and so obnoxious... but you try it now and it's crazy," says DeLonge. "It's awesome. It sounds so good. It has so much more clarity and volume and a much wider sound... I instantly fell in love with it." Because of its aggressive tone Dirty Fingers pickups will also appeal to those who play tuned down nu-metal.

The Dirty Fingers pickup comes with a four-conductor lead and is wax potted to eliminate unwanted microphonic feedback. And as with all Gibson replacement pickups, it's backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Great Addition to Epiphone Les Paul

I installed one of these in my 2004 Epiphone Les Paul bridge position replacing the "HOTCH(G)" pickup; I wired it using the "standard humbucking operation" diagram included in the instructions. This Dirty Fingers pickup is a different beast, it's hot AND clean and even sounds great when ran with the neck pickup (center switch position on a Les Paul) and seems much smoother than the pickup it replaced. When playing with overdrive/distortion, you get a good chunky sound in the lower notes, I'm considering putting one in the neck position, I imagine that would be wild.

High Output Tone

I purchased this pickup after coming to the conclusion that I needed more output from my backup guitars. My main axe is a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard with Burstbucker Pros. My intention was to out this in a 2001 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop to help a drop in volume and gain when switching out guitars but didn't want to mess with a Gibson without testing it out first. I dropped this baby in my 1975 Ibanez Pre-Lawsuit Les Paul Custom and wow did it sing. There was an increase in gain with very little loss of the warmth and sweetness the Alnico 5 magnets in the Burstbuckers afforded me on my Standard. And installing this was a breeze. I found a wiring schematic for Les Pauls and simply soldered where it needed it and presto-change-o I've breathed new life into an old guitar.

Dirty lil secret - Tone for weeks

Add a Dirty Fingers to an Epiphone custom Les Paul (or even a standard) will make an EXTREME difference in tone, harmonics and sustain for days. You might ask: Will it be to muddy or mid tone compressed? Answer: No, this pup has power yet clarity to cut through in upper frequency. Oh yes she does indeed have a powerful full low end that works well for blues to rock (not over compressed tones like an active EMG etc.) and this pup also can do D' tune or Full step down tunnelings. Want a full on shred sounding Epiphone? . Add a dirty fingers to the bridge and a Gibson 500 T Super Ceramic or 496r Hot Ceramic in the neck....Now stand back cause your stock Epi is a now a flame thrower...I don't kid around, and I'm not paid by Gibson or Epiphone to write reviews and hype their products. I have done these upgrades to two Epiphone LP's with excellent results. Note I also added 500K pots and oil/paper caps to make a full "tone" machine. Take your $300 to $600 Epiphone and drop another $300 into top shelf upgrades and your Epi Les Paul WILL have tones (many times better I have seen) Than a $3500+ Gibson standards, classics and simply blow away stock Studio models. If for any reason you doubt my words here? Visit my FB page and look at my "Studio Gear" album. I have owned many a Gibby Les Pauls and a few Epi's that were modded to MAX tone machines.

To the other guitarist review

For one i just want to state that tom delonge is a very creative guitarist. He does not suck. You need to realize that he played as lead and rythem while being a front man of singing. Do you know how hard that is. Two these pickups are amazing. The give a highly versitle tone that has a distinguished sound. I wanted a pick up to play punk but there were times i needed it to have its sound without having to much "mud". I highly agree with these pickups.
