If you've followed Pantera's rise to the top of the metal heap, then you're already well aware of the searing, crushing, metal massacre that is Dimebag Darrell's signature guitar tone. Now, that tone is yours with the SH-13 Dimebucker.

The output levels are outstanding, way too much for the clean channel on my amp to still be clean. The highs and mids are a bit nasally and overwhealm the lows.

Moderate output, instant-mount, hum canceling pickup housed in maple cover and double potted. The tone is warm and rich with no 60-cycle hum. Great for strumming and delicate fingerstyle playing. Includes studio-quality 14' cable.

Late-'50s, vintage-correct, humbucker sound. Warm and crystalline clean tones. Full and bright distorted tones. Smooth sustain. Classic appointments include plain enamel wire, long legged bottom plate, vintage single conductor cable and no logo. Compared to the SH-55 Seth Lover, the '59 has slightly more scooped mids and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.

Seymour Duncan: APS-1Pickups
Seymour Duncan: APS-1

The hand ground Alnico 2 magnets and moderate windings (Heavy Formvar wire) yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APS-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack.
