Hi guys, gals and everybody else,
I have a Chibson Les Paul here, which I got as a gift from a very good friend. I really like the guitar, it sounds very good when it's not plugged in. I know the quality of these Chuitars is questionable, but hey, never turn down a gift.
I already have a lot of hum bucker-equipped guitars. And I don't really like the pickups that are in this guitar. Mainly the bridge PU is a bit weak sounding. So my idea is, to swap them for hum bucker-sized P90's. Not the hot ones (I once owned a MusicMan Axis with P90's which I didn't really fancy), but a set of vintage voiced PU's would be great. The problem is, that I don't know anything about P90's, and which ones sound 'good' (not too hot, with a bit of clarity, but not as much as an S- of T-style pickup) and won't break the bank. Do you have any ideas on which pickups I could buy? Thanks in advance for your replies!
