Smile Les Paul Copy Bridge Pickup Upgrade.

Hi there,

So I have a Nevada Les Paul copy that I use on stage (I'm in a punk band, and it gets thrown around a lot) and want to replace the bridge pickup (I never use the neck one) just to improve the sound a bit.

Affordable suggestions please? My budget is 100 ($160).

Cheers

Something with good clarity and plenty of tone.

Like I said in the post, I play in a punk/hardcore band and it only really gets used for that.

That doesn't really say much, you know. Tone and clarity is kinda subject to personal preferences. Best if you can find an audio clip or a favorite artist sound.

Check out GFS pickups. They have a few different humbuckers so you might be able to find one that suits you.



Personally I wouldn't spend more than that on a budget guitar.
