So I found this picture of Dime with the dimebucker in the bridge but the pickup was upside down and I was wondering did he do that to all of his guitars and what it would do to his tone

They would be out of phase, probably. This is another reason why his tone was anorexic.

Theoretically.

Also, maybe he is standing in front of a mirror.

No, in the picture the neck pickup has the duncan logo on the bottom while the bridge has it on the bottom.

Please link the picture and we can probably figure out what's going on.

flipping the pickup alone doesn't make it out of phase. you would need to flip the magnet or reverse the wires.

I remember reading somewhere that Dime fliped all his pickups around for whatever reason.

Flipping a pickup has no real difference in sound. It won't make it out of phase.

100 percent. Flipping the pickup does nothing to phase. Its the magnets or wiring that will do it.


This whole myth wouldnt exist if somebody put PGs neck pickup back in right when it was fixed up.

FWIW Dime did install the Bill Lawrence L500XL blade pickup @ 180 degree flipped in the bridge position. He said they were too squirrelly when mounted normally.
