• 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!

Found My Perfect Pickup Combo

My number one Les Paul is an ‘87 Prehistoric/Standard (avatar). I put in 500K CTS pots and Jensen paper in oil caps. I finally put in pickups that give me what I want. In the neck is an early 70’s Gibson T-Top. It has the patent sticker. In the bridge is a new Seymour Duncan Whole Lotta Humbucker. Both are uncovered. Both are double black. I took the Duncan logo off by rubbing it with toothpaste. Anyone else use a T-Top in the neck? The young guitar tech that worked on it raved about it. It is so dynamic.
