What up guys

So I've got a EVH Wolfgang and a Gibson Les Paul with 57/57 classic plus and I play through a 50w 5150 III.

I like all sorts of blues, hard rock/metal.

I love my LP and it's what I've mainly been playing lately. However, I find myself having to use the Wolfgang to get the sound I want for the heavier end of my music spectrum.

SO, I actually have a Duncan Custom Sh-5 thats been sitting here in a box brand new for about a year now. I might go ahead and toss it in my LP for fun. I know a lot of people love these in a gibby. I would be doing my own soldering, just wondering if its even worth my time. Has anyone directly compared the 57+ and the Custom in a LP. It seems like it would probably be very similar and an LP. I'm sure there would be a good difference between a regular 57... but the plus??

i haven't tried it in a LP but it's a fair hot ceramic pickup so I'm guessing there's going to be a fair amount of difference.
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.

Ive tried an SH-5 in a schecter c-1 that a friend has, and i found it worked well wih the mahogany, even if it did scoop the tone a little.

should work well with an LP

Give it a go and if you dont like it then swap back.
