but in most cases it isn't that tough to put the 81 in. I think it's two extra wires and then wrap the battery in the foam they provide and place the battery in the existing control cavity

Don't get a Dimebucker, get a Bill Lawrence 500XL, it costs half as much and it's what Dimebag actually used.

Personally, I'd stick with the EMG81.

the dimebucker is probably one of the worst aftermarket pickups you can buy, and its 100$. but then again emg's are pretty bad too if you ask me. yeah, theyre hot. but i prefer my tone not to sound like a flaming bag of cow sh*t. emg 81 is really sterile and has 0 versitility.

If you're going to post a question then you should at least try to make it relevant to something

Have you ever even played a guitar with EMGs or are you just saying that because someone else told you that.

EMGs are actually VERY versatile pickups. Go get educated.

^ +1 on that.

I have a Lefty FBD w/ a Dimebucker it's not AS bad as people say, i also have a few guitars with EMG's, overall i'd go for Emgs but the Dimebucker is alright, not worth the $100 tho.
