Hi, well, this is my problem:
I know how to do pinch harmonics (at least thats what I think), but I cant make them sound in my Epiphone les Paul Special model (not special II), but i CAN in my Lyon Washburn and my friend's Ibanez...

Do you have any idea, i mean, why do you think this happens?
I think this maybe occurs because of my pickups...
I dont really know a lot about pickups

My epiphone has humbuckers like this ones:

And my washburn like this ones (my friend's ibanez too)
Not with the white part...

I hope you see the difference...

And I hope you can help me...

Are they active pickups? If so, you might just need to change the battery in your guitar. Are the guitars the same scale length? If the length is different, the nodes will be further apart, and you'll have to estimate where to find them as they won't be in same spot as your other guitar.

Its not the pickups.

Its the bridge.

The ibanez, probably has a floyd rose on it, so you can be a bit more parallel to the strings with your picking hand.

Maybe you have a higher setup on your bridge, and your crouching over with your hand or something. maybe you just need to improve your technique?

Bring the pickups closer to the strings?

I can do pinchies on a telecaster on a low gain sorta setup.

And a higher gain, on a neck pickup.

You just gotta get used to the technique.

Nope, that Ibanez its a normal Ibanez Gio, it does not have a floyd rose
