Gibson Dirty Fingers
I recently had the opportunity to play this pick-up in a John Sykes Gibson Custom shop. My immediate reaction was "so that's how he gets his thick wall of sound tone!". Seriously, you hear a lot about how Sykes used older Mesa amps and that was the secret. I'm here to tell you, a part of that secret is the Dirty Fingers pick up. This thing is pretty wicked, very hot and has a massive thick tone to it. The bass reaction is really well and it has lots of response to palm mutes and thumnpy thick tones. The high end is also very good with lots of grind, maybe not as much as I normally like but very good. Probably an 8 and a half out of 10 on the grindy mids. The overall balance of the pick-up is very pleasing and you overlook that it isn't absolutely perfect. It is definitely the kind of pick up that makes you not want to put down the guitar. Now that being said, it does have one shortfall and it is one that is hard to pinpoint. I'm not sure if it is the overall tone or elements of it but when I switch between my EVH Wolfgang with the stock EVH Humbucker, the tone is immediately better. Don't get me wrong the Dirty Fingers is thicker and beefier but the overall package loses to the Wolfgang. The DF on its own without comparison is addictive more for the feel than for the perfect tone you might be waiting for. Sometimes feel is more important and if that's the case, this one is for you. I think there are better pick-ups out there if great tone is what you seek. There is no doubt about it if you are looking for chunky and big, this pick up is for you. If you want something a bit tamer, you may want to look at something else. Oh and if you are looking to sound like John Sykes, look no further, the Dirty Fingers is for you.

I use it for 2 years on a squier showmaster. I bought it for more output level and hope to have a big sound, result: a grain Crados cool enough for good punk rock distortion and very high BUT in fact mostly garish. In the end it gives the impression of a dynamic rather flat packed in a disturbing lack acute low ... not very like his guts!
I infer from this brief experience, that in any case be avoided on micro guitars strat guy, or a sound like slamming etc.
Why not half a box, or les paul, it could compensate somewhat the character of micro but I still have doubts.

Too expensive for me, given the outcome.
If it was a remake I would have tried another microphone, I have a tone zone on a les paul junior and the difference with the dirty finger is striking.

Installed bridge on a Gibson reissue SG61, microphone provides the versatility that I expected from this instrument. The Dirty Fingers is more neutral and powerful bridge and can go from Blues to hard rock with all shades in between. Very nice!
Easy assembly. The son is already connected together correctly in the package, and there is more than welding.

I use the microwave for a month just prs. It replaces the original microphone of my Greco Les Paul Custom in 1977. The microphone in 1978, it has the right vintage look that matched my guitar. In addition, a rare thing, he has vis-loving gold (even if well worn). My MODEL is a single driver in "Vintage Clothes". I love its power and claret I did not expect a microphone so versatile. Vintage wish but formidable power. Absolutely wonderful. It is dirty if you are a barbarian, or a soft cotton if handled with kindness. Nothing to do with its competitors, and none of it reaches the ankle. It has all the potatoes we could ask for an EMG active, a DiMarzio claret and the warmth of a typical old Gibson.
Level qualitprix report, no one would make a case like mine: 65 on ebay, including postage (long live the United States!). I will not repeat that choice, I will. Moreover, there are some on ebay enchres ...: p

I mount the microphone with a 496R on my les paul studio and frankly the versatility of the guitar has a fawn amliore surprising. this microphone is incredible clean sound it has a fairly DEFINITIONS drives it is fairly dense and somewhat curiously members do funk riffs and even playing with the Tone to the blues (the 496 does better now) The arpeggios are magnificent even by attacking means all strings in saturated is the Grail of the attack is either dirty or it's incisive harmonic single out any particularly surprising in a sibilant beginners, solo with reverb it gets a good slap bass and treble Submitted by no means nasilliards mdiums and beautiful and just right, and plans to riff enough mutts as I ai dja di rang up the grunge mtal old school (he has a vintage characters must not forget even if he can make it modern pourrat not make Chimara. its output level allows all SETTING THE volume and tonality of the guitar which gives it the flexibility and dynamics is to die for, I put 9 because perfection does not exist, but n ' is not far, I think for the micro power of punk is very well but it can touch everything with a grain enough staff when same.
