Ok So I Am Thinking About Putting Some Dimebuckers In My Telecaster That My Dad Bought Me For My Birthday. I Have Been Listening To Pantera For A Few Years And Ever Since The First Song I Have Been In Love With Dimebag. He Is Even Better In Damageplan. RIP Dime! Ever Since I First Heard Of The Dimebucker I Have Wanted One So I Can Sound Just Like Dime.

I Know That It Won't Fit At First (Square Peg, Sphere Hole, You Might Say) But My Dad Said That He Could Rout Out A Good Fit For It. He Is A Dentist So He Has Experience With Similar Tools.

I Think My Telecaster Armed With Some Shrediclicious Dimebuckers Will Sound INSANE. Especially With My Current Rig, It's A 15-W Head and a 65R (The 'R' Means Reissue, In Case You Were Wondering.) Vertical Amp Stack. I Used To Have It Set-Up As A Horizontal Amp Stack But I Didn't Like The Sound As Much. Anyways, Here's A Pic:



Once I'm Finished With This Puppy I'll Think My Guitar Will Sound Like Dimebag Smiling Down On Me From Heaven.

the FM65 and the cheap FM arent really high gain amps. i would upgrade my amp to a roland or something similar first.

I had one in a guitar once. Let's just say I don't have that guitar anymore.

And TS, that is going to sound so horrible your going to regret every minute of it.

Wow dude, how many idiots flocked to this thread. Jimi Hendrix used a Marshall, not a Fender. I don't even like Jimi and I know that.

I hear that Mark Knopfler used the same set-up. He has the best pinch-harmonics and distortion I've ever heard, do it man

Everybody in this thread so far is an idiot. EDIT:Except for Jenny and Useful_Idiot16, I guess.

Dimebuckers are quite bad. They cost too much, they don't sounds very good, they are muddy on the low strings, they are screechy on the high strings.

Fender amps are NOT high gain amps.

Also, Dime's playing was NOT better in Damageplan (Just my opinion, btw.)

If you want the bridge pickup Dime used, look in to a Bill Lawrence L-500XL.

What are YOU talking about. Jimi played marshall anyways, not fenders. And he didn't play metal, so why would you want high gain? Those two are totally unrelated. Plus, fenders aren't high gain. A roland cube 60 is way more high gain. The r doesn't stand for reissue. Those are new solid state amps.
#25
^omg finally. PLUS he's running it thru a fm15 too, completely killing his tone.

Uhm, you totally restated everything I said and added the Bill Lawrence part. So, there was one other person who was not an idiot, which was me. But if you take my name into account, then you were right.

Frontman 65R is solid state, not tube, and isnt high gain, idk 2 dimebuckers in a tele seems a little weird, i'd say get a randall if you want dimes tone, yea this is very weird post.

Oh jesus effing christ noobs...

So Ts here the real deal. Most people in this thread minus jenny,wylde,sg, and useful have given you piss poor advice. pickup like said is the xl-500

A. The Dimebucker is a horrible pickup. Its muddy, overpriced, and not what Darrell used
B. Most tone comes from amp. a shit amp like the mg, spider, FM, low end crate wont get you a great tone(liek dimebag). Best bet is to go with a roland cube at this point until you can afford a randall if you are after a dimebag tone.
C. The fm or mg isnt going to get you a great tone, again start investing in a better amp. amp is 70-80% of tone (not counting fingers)
d. To everyone giving piss poor adivce- just because you own it doesnt mean its the shiz, so quit recommending crap. I could careless if you reply with " well i can get a good tone out of it" or ect. I dont care, i've owned them all, and i know for the money they are some of the worst investments guitar wise.

Thank you : )

^oh jesus christ . just because it has the same brand name and a remotely same name doesnt make it at all the same. its like saying a cat is like a human because its a mammal.

how is the pickup muddy that dosnt make sense how can metal be muddy n dimebag used it that is proof it is good as is
#33
He
A. had a huge rig, that consisted of rackmounts and GOOD AMPS
B. He hardly ever used the dimebucker. he mainly used a bill lawrence xl-500. Thats what the real razorback have. All of what you hear recorded is with the xl-500

Wtf are you talking about, he used the Dimebucker for everything, I read it in Kerrang.

let me get this right, you are running a 15w amp in the 65w version of the same amp. you connected them through the headphone out going to input 2. and nothing is going into the input on the 15w amp. so basicly it is just there to look cool. also it somehow sounds different as a horizantal and vertical stack (wtf is a horizantal stack)?you also thing the R stands for reissue, when it actually stands for reverb. you try to type in all caps (capslock doesnt work btw, thank god).

now listen when i say this. dont just go sticking pickups in your guitar just because they say dime-somethingorother. they arent anything spectacular, and it isnt a move you will cherish in years to come. find a better pickup, or better yet a nice single coil for the neck and a good 'bucker for the bridge. then you will be happy.
#36
wut do you mean by single coil like a strat pup?! y do that dime dint have a single in his neck pickup ever why would the ts do that?!
#37
Dude make sure to record some sound clips when you install it. IT WILL ****ING SOUND SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh jesus christ i give up

A. Dimebucker is fairly recent in the SD lineup. So for pantera, guess what there was no dimebucker. for the recording of the damage plan cd, no diembucker. See clips of live shows and you'lll see a Bill Lawrence but not a *gasp* dime bucker.
B. If you believe everything written in Kerrang you have to be a freaking fool.
