Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
I have one of these guitars and I think they are ceramic magnets.
Johnny Winter, Allen Collins and Brian Jones are the Firebird players familiar to me.
Winter looks like he played stock Birds. Collins had a P90 in his bridge and a mini humbucker in the neck.
Can anyone Recommend a replacement...
Generally the first thing I do with most of my guitars is upgrade the pickups.
I got a new R9 in 2013 and the pickups are great . This never happens to me and I will keep this guitar stock.
What did Gibson use that year should I want to try to pick up a used pair for another guitar ?
