I just got back from a friends house and he showed me a killer Explorer from the 80's. It had - reportedly -two double cream dirty fingers pups w/ Gold hardware. Is there could there be such a thing - I saw & heard them. Seemed authentic....
Let me see pics of the baseplate and I´ll tell ya fer sure. It´s very possible.
They would definitely be single conductor and have 2 rows of Filister screws for poles.

If you can knock out TV reception within a 50 yard radius, they're Dirty Fingers.
They came in cream. They were used on "The Explorer" and "The V", the maple-topped guitars Gibson made in the '81 time frame to compete with Hamer and Dean. The Explorer had black plastic, and the V had cream. Both had gold hardware, IIRC.
the early 80's Gibson and Epi spirits also came with creme Dirty fingers
'05 Gibson SG Standard
'07 Gibson Sg Standard Emg 81/85
PRS IRW McCarty
'92 Fender MIA Telecaster
82 Usa Epiphone Spirit w/ Dirtyfingers
there is a double cream dirty finger on ebay right now.
I've seen double cream DF's with T-tops in the past. They're out there. But I can't name off the models or years or anything. I put one in a Japanese Strat with a Maple board for a client almost 20 years ago, and it absolutely killed. I think they make excellent raunchy "blow your face off" superstrat transplants. Something about that double screw/triple magnet setup in a strat style guitar just rips. It's all garbled and overdriven, and the strat's longer scale and Maple bolt-neck puts it out front, instead of a set neck short scale Mahogany sweetening and darkening it.
I'm a huge fan of the DF. I have 3 and a half of them. I should put one in my Tele again...
Tick and meaty. Not the greatest for cutting leads tho...
Buy the book in my avatar. It's pretty cool.
