Hey I was just wondering if anyone has ever taken the stock pickups out of a epiphone les paul custom and used them in somthing else. I have a Guild x 88 that has the emg 85bridge 81 neck( I know they are backwards). but I busted out my Epiphone les paul the other day and dame does that thing have some low end an harmonic response. I dont really get it both guitars are made of mahogony but my guild has half of the low end that the epi has. so I was thinking bout get a set of the epi pickups off line an putting them in my guild. I thought that I would ask an see if anyone has done this with a guitar. Most people would like the 81 85 but the stock epi is just so deep. an I dont know if its the pick ups.
Go for it dude.
