So I have been stuck between a rock and a hard place for the last couple months. In the middle of the summer I swapped out the factory 57 Classics in my Les Paul Traditional for a set of Seymour Duncan Whole Lotta Humbuckers. Ever since I did that I have been looking at the 57's sitting in the old Seymour Duncan thinking I should chuck them into my Explorer seeing as the are sitting there doing nothing. From what I have read all over the net on forums it seems like the 57 is considered one of, if not the best Gibson pickup with the Burstbucker being the other contender. The Explorer comes with the 496R and 500T pickups which are both fairly high output ceramic pickups, which don't get me wrong sound great. Something makes me think swapping over to the vintage pickup would suit it better. I know I prefer vintage output pickups in comparison; however I have owned the Explorer for a long time and have only ever known its tone to be that high output modern rock feel. Anyone here done this swap or maybe played an Explorer that had 57's in it?

I don't need to purchase pickups, I already own them. Just customizing a current guitar I own.
