Hey all. I have 2 Les Pauls', both have Alnico 2 humbuckers. I would like to make one of them sound completely different from the other. So, my question is, what pickups would you use?
My wife said " It's either those damned guitars, or me!!"

I miss her a bit.

The stock pickups are clean, kinda tinny, so by contrast, I'd like something warm, with a little edge.

I'd put a few hun into pick ups.

P90s. i installed Gibson P94T into my bridge position on my les paul studio a few months ago and have never looked back! i was thinking exactly the same way as you, i wanted to be able to get totally different sounds out of 1 guitar and i love the p90s

Thanks guys. Anybody have some Pearly Gate experience?

if you are looking for something on the heavy side, one of my go to pickups is Gibson's 500t for bridge or gibsons dirty fingers, or you could look for actives. the pearly gates sound nice, but aren't heavy. SD 59's sound nice in the neck, real smooth, a JB is a pretty typical heavy pickup, but i dont like thtem. just throwing some ideas out there.
