Dimebag Darrell - DimeTime

In 1990, a band named Pantera emerged from Dallas led by a guitarist named Dimebag Darrell who would shape the sound of metal forever. Dean Guitars spent countless hours with Dime's original Deans used to record Cowboys From Hell and with Grady Champion, Dime's long-time guitar tech, to analyze the master's tones. The result is the DIMETIME neck pickup - a pickup that will change YOUR sound forever!

Pat Baker - Baker Act

Pat Baker is the driving force behind the Dean USA pickup line. Besides being an 11 year veteran here at Dean Guitars, Pat has one of the most astonishing set of ears we have ever come across. He is able to hear very minor subtleties between pickups which has enabled him to design this ground breaking line of pickups. As a player Pat Baker is perhaps the finest shred/rock player you will hear. His signature pickup The Baker Act has the output, guts and grit that players of his stature are entitled to.
