Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!

As you'd expect, the Dimebucker SH-13 from Seymour Duncan offers the same kind of ultra-high output that makes conjuring face-melting metal tones that it's namesake was famous for. In case you haven't guessed, that namesake would be "Dimebag" Darrell, the Texas guitarist that rose to fame providing the riffage for metal legends Pantera, and later Damageplan, and the Dimebucker SH-13 has that aggressive tone in spades. And speaking of tone, the blade-style design keeps the tone consistent through the most devastating bends. Fore pure metal, it's the Dimebucker SH-13.

Seymour Duncan Dimebucker SH-13 at a Glance:
  • Sound
  • Complete setup

The Dimebucker uses a powerful ceramic magnet coupled with stainless steel blades for hard-hitting crunch. The SH-13 has both high d.c. resistance and a high resonant peak. The result is a high-output, aggressive humbucker with more treble bite and clarity than an SH-8 Invader, as well as punchy bass response and exceptional dynamics. The blades make the Dimebucker great for balanced bends. The SH-13 Dimebucker comes with four-conductor hookup cable and its own form-fitting mounting ring.

Complete setup
For searing leads, the Dimebucker SH-13 is a perfect fit in the bridge position. Dimebag complemented the Dimebucker by using a '59 Model in the neck for P.A.F. tones. The Dimebucker is suitable for use in any instrument, as the double blades make this pickup suitable for both humbucker and Trembucker string spacings. This metal maniac comes in any color you like - as long as it's black!

Does not get better

I've used these off and on for years along with EMG HZ's of various models and many many others but for punchy/ brilliantly sparkly cleans on channel one all the way to screaming sustained violence on channel 3 dimebuckers are just fan f'ing tastic.. I play mostly heavy modern medal and a dime in the bridge and a tube screamer boosting my Trirec it's that tonal destination I've always been searching for... Put one in every guitar!

Seymour Duncan '59 neck 4 cond pickup

Very beautiful sound for all music in neck position. Both Dimebucker and 59 brought my Carvin V220c to life as you want it to be
Music background: Played for 60 years

Dimebucker pickup

Very good for high gain and harmonics


This is a very responsive P/U. When you're a new player like me you have to learn pick dynamics all over again. Playing through a responsive amp and with this pickup you can turn the gain down and still get good crunch. Sustain lasts forever and no matter how far you bend a string, it's going to let every bit of that bend come through. Took a little more practice to make the bends sound better too!
Music background: Just above a beginner

Dynamic Dimebucker

Great bridge pickup. I like the tone that this high output passive pickup delivers. It blends nicely with a Seymour Duncan SCR 1n on my present custom built guitar. I'm having a second custom-build guitar made with the Dimebucker along with a Seymour Duncan SVR 1n in the middle position, and a Sustainiac driver in the neck position.
