why do people put EMG pick ups in gibson les paul customs?

surely if you spent £2000 on an guitar it shouldnt need anything changed??????

personal preference of tones.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

well buying a guitar and expecting it to be perfect doesnt really work, if ppl want their sound they custom guitars, if there was a guitar for every specific tone there would 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

I don't know why you would want to do that to a gibson when you could get an ESP or something but it all comes down to preference.

...Which should instead be using passive pickups to bring out the actual wood, not the electronics

I somehow knew that before I even entered the thread or previewed it that it had something to do with:

1. Metal
2. Metalheads
3. EMGs

not really. if someone likes a certain tone that only a certain set of pickups can achieve, then they'll do the pickup swap.

You might also love the feel of the guitar, it might just be the best guitar ever for you apart from the pickups. Then you can just change them. Easy Peasy.

First, yea its mostly personal preference


also if you do something to the guitar yourself you feel more "connected" to it.
...Or at least I do
