"Another hugely important element is the choice of pickups for my guitars. Besides stock Gibson pups, which are often great just the way the are, I really love Jim Wagner pickups, especially the Goodwood set and the Bet set, but they all rock. I also really dig several sets that Tim Mills of Bare Knuckle Pickups has developed, namely the Black Dog and the Riff Raff being among my favorite but they're all great as well; it depends what you're looking for. Then, of course, I have a few Seymour Duncan pups in a few of my axes, I have an SG Supreme with a Dimebucker in it that is a smokin' combination.

"To demo the Seymour Duncan Dimebucker, I had write a track that was in the style of Dimebag Darrell. The Dimebucker is an acquired taste but I like it. It's based on the old Bill Lawrence Pickups that Dimebag used to use. It's got a really satisfying chunk to it that makes you feel like you can take on the world. It's a little scooped in the mids, with boosted highs and lows and its very high output. If you you're after a modern Misha Mansoor Djent tone, then this probably isn't for for you. But, If you want a slightly old skool sound this is pretty cool!" - video description.more
Crunchy pick attack, scooped mids, and just the right amount of saturation are what this pickup is all about. Dime wanted his signature humbucker to have a thick crunch that sags just a little when you really lay into it. Combine that with a full, tight, low end response, a ceramic magnet, with dual stainless steel blades, and you have the Dimebucker. Huge and straight from the brain of the late great Darrell Abbot. In a 2004 interview Dimebag described the tone of the Dimebucker, “Its very saturated not to the point where its overly fuzzy but it has a smooth and crunchy distortion tone. It will give you some extra gain, but it wont go so far that your sound breaks up and is going crazy. You get that warm tone with the distortion mixed in and it has the low end thats kicking you in the butt while the top end is cutting your face off in the right way, but not ripping your face off. If you ever listen to a Pantera record, that’s what you’ll hear through this pickup”. Combine with a 59 Model (bridge) in the neck position for the setup that Darrell himself used, or get our Dimebag Set for neck and bridge. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Dimebucker uses a ceramic bar magnet, dual stainless steel blades, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
