so i tried posting this thread in the guitar building section and didn't get much response at all.

looking to switch out the POS pickups in my studio paul. i need them to be good for both gain and clean. i've been looking at dimarzios but dont know what model to look at, also have looked into burst buckers, and my gtr tech works with lollars so those could be an option as well.

as far as genres like i said i need it to be pretty diverse, i need them for distortion stuff but i also want it to be able to get pretty clean for the random gigs i do where i don't feel like bringing the jazzbox. i use a fender twin reverb and a jc120 if that helps at all, big fan of TS9s and i also use a Rat, if that helps as well.

any info you can give me would be great

Thx

How much are you willing to spend?

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

check out bg pickups then. They might be right up your alley

The Lizard might be my choice, that really isn't that bad of a price either.

Thanks for the hookup

Try bareknuckle pickups, the general consensus seems to be that they are the best pickups on the market

+1 for the bareknuckles.
My friend just gave me his VHII for me to borrow, we put it in on Saturday. I'll have clips up soon.
We also moved my Dimarzio FRED from the bridge to the neck. It sounds GORGEOUS there. The best clean sound my guitar has ever given me.
And I'm using these in a Les Paul Studio as well.

Forum needs to get off BKP's balls.

There are loads of other brands at the same price point or lower that feature competitive products.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.
#12
yeah i'm not sure BKP are for me

i love my fralin strat pickups but i wasn't crazy about the humbuckers, a friend had them in his standard LP, and he in fact ended up ripping them out and putting his dimarzio's back in.

i'll check out MHD and see what i can find.

I can't really speak for how they handle higher gain, BUT a buddy of mine started using a PAF set from Jerry Amalfitano. He got a Bell Jazzblaster that came with them stock and then later put them into his Gibson Custom Shop LP. He swears by them. He converted some vintage elitist Nashville producers/engineers with them! NOT an easy thing to do!There's a pretty extensive list of pro's using them too. If you're interested in Lindy Fralin's it would be a shame for you to miss out on these!

Edit: I completely missed this last night... probably tired and needed sleep... Look into his Barrybuckers or Fullbuckers. That should do the trick!
