I was trying out a used Jackson at a music store today which had a pickup on it that was unfamiliar to me. When I asked the sales me about it he said it was a special type of magnetic pickup that guitarists like Dimebag Darrell use to get that great sound on their dives. It had a separate on/off switch and the guitar also had a standard selector switch. Can anyone identify this type of pickup?

Could literally be anything. All pickups are magnets, and any pickup is capable of having it's own on/off switch. The sales guy is really trying to get you to buy it.

Dimebag used Bill Lawrence pup reversed. Nothing special about it, its just another super hot pickup. Sounds like marketing speech.

Did it look different? That can narrow it down, for instance if it uses big bar magnets, only a few pups have that design. If it uses hex pole pieces, we could narrow it down to probably being a DiMarzio... probably. Regular screw pole pieces... could be anything. There's really not much we can do.

Special also means that the salesboy was talking shit out of his mouth with shit for brains.

You should tell the salesboy that a "magnetic pickup" description is about as useful as having teeth in his arse.

Anytime someone tries to sell a product by using Dimebag's name is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Dimebag may have been a good guitarist, but his tone was pretty terrible.

Next time, ask to take a picture, it would be more useful than a description.
