Hi all,
Got a late 90's epi LP standard, I have already changed every part on the guitar to be a Gibson. My good friend had a Gibson LP, he was putting in a piezo and EMGs, so he sold me the electronics, bridge and tuners. I know they are burstbuckers, but I am going for a traditional Led Zep CCR kinda tone out of my LP. SO question, are there any pup sets I should look at, I'm trying to get away from the higher resistance PUPs.
Thanks all

I'm thinking the classic Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz combination may sort you out.


Although, it must be asked; what amp?

Dimarzio Crunchlab and Liquifire all the way if you want versatility. Do a coil split and bam, I ****ing love it.

I'm not really looking for versatility per say. I have a dean ml dime with Bill Lawrence in it, I just want to get that old sound for my lp. Pearly gates? My buds dad has and said he loved it. I mean back to the jb/jazz I know it's common to do, so good old trusty I guess

Check out the SD Custom 5 (SH-14) and the Custom/59 Hybrid (SH-16, I think? Not sure.).

In the neck, you really can't go wrong with a '59 (SH-1) for classic tones. It's great. The Pearly Gates and Alnico Pro II are also great too though. Just gotta find what suits your tastes.

I'd go a lot lower output than a JB or even a custom 5. I'd go paf or hot paf-type pickups for that. '59 (i've only tried that in the neck), pearly gates, something like that.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I strongly recommend the 57 in the neck, I'd even second dave on going lower output than the jb. Although i do love the jb/57 combination. The downside is, I've only tested it in an alder body, but the 57 nails classic tones like zeppelin with ease.

I wouldn't limit yourself to Duncan and Dimarzio either. I've had very good luck with IronGear pups, and I usually recommend them over the former. Also, Bareknuckle and Motor City are very nice pickups, but a bit pricier.
