Lives up to the hype.
04.06.2014
I'm not a huge pickup aficionado, but I knew I wanted something loud and punchy, and this is very loud and very punchy.

I've had no problems with it in the several years I've owned it, and I've dropped it into a few different guitars and it's never come up short. Currently have it in my semi-acoustic, and the tone is brilliant.

My favourite feature is that it is incredibly quiet when not playing: no feedback, no hum, nothing.

My least favourite thing about it is that even with the volume rolled back all the way, there is still some slight noise when the strings are hit. This could just be dodgy wiring on my end.

Excellent pickup - though not for everyone
dimer19, 16.05.2020
Pretty much summed up above.. If this is the kind of high-output pickup you are after, then look no further.
It's tone-shaping capability is exceptional; high output, good for heavy rock, dirty blues etc.
Although I have only used it as a neck pickup.

Massive power, with lots of control
Michael12, 10.12.2013
My first Dirty fingers was an original 70s/80s model in the bridge of a Gibson Les Paul, and I loved it. I recently decided to try a reissued model in the bridge of an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro. I am pleased to say, it is every bit as good as the old models.

Firstly, it is a very hot pickup. Capable of driving any amp without turning the "fuzz" up too far in the preamp gain. It does respond very well to volume control though.

The tone is very "Gibson". A nice warm round crunch with lots of harmonic richness. Not a scooped as the 500t, but still capable of massive chunky crunch. It cleans up nicely with volume control to give a nice crunchy blues sound.

The highs are not as high as on the 500t, they are just as strong, but have more upper mid and less harsh presence. The lows are also tighter.

The pickup responds well to amp EQ for pretty much most music styles.
Overall, one of my favourite pickups.

The sound of Rock
Inflamed, 31.05.2018
It's loud, foul, soulful and dirty. It works extremely well with a down-tuned guitar. It seems like a lot of people prefer the original, but I don't. I actually sold an original 1978 Dirty Fingers to replace it a reissue - they have more bite, sound brighter (but not buzzy), and contrary to the old ones, these are wax potted. If you're looking for a warm, aggressive sounding pickup, or make your Gibson sound like a Gibson with more output, I can't recommend the Dirty Fingers enough.
