Hi everyone. The thing is, I have a 2001 Les Paul Standard that I love. But!! The neck pickup sounds very muddy and the bridge pickup has very sharp highs. I have another, also standard, from 2005 that sounds much more balanced. The neck pickup sounds much more defined and the bridge pickup doesn't have those sharp highs. I have already tried everything that could occur to correct this imbalance of the 2001 LP. I tried with BB 1 and 2. Seymor Duncan 59 and 2 versions of the 490 and 498. I also changed 300 and 500k potentiometers, changed bumble bee capacitors , ceramics, etc.. modify the height of the pickups. And there is always the imbalance of to lows in the neck and sharp highs in the bridge. The only difference between the two guitars is the tuners. The 2005 has the klusons and the problem one has grovers. I don't know if this difference in pins can generate such an imbalance. I hope someone has an idea to give me to solve this problem.
