• 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 would like some oppinions about this pickup combination for a mahagony/maple top guitar from people who are actually using them.

Sound files would be very useful too.

Thank you.

they ok sounding. i posted this elsewhere, but i'll post this again. I had them put into a PRS CUstom 24. The neck was pretty bland compared the original PRS vintage bass let alone my McCarty's Lindy Fralin PAF. the BBQ was pretty harsh in the midrange. kinda like crushing glass. not too smooth. but it pumped out lots of volume. couldnt get a clean tone at all from my Maz 18 Jr. head. but i'm sure in a heavier LP where the "fundamental" of the tone is more pronounded, it would sound pretty good. The fact that my custom 24 was pretty lightweight and resonant might have a lot to do with the BBQ accentuating the highs making it seem sooo harsh sounding. play before you pay is all i can say.
