Have you played around with your EQ settings and gain and so on first?

i think you would want to raise the low end(bass) and lower the mids and/or highs.

I thought les pauls were fat enough on their own....

Well, start with the obvious: boost bass, midrange and volume. Use the neck pickup.
Try some heavier strings. Usually les pauls have .010 sets, but you could try .011's for more fatness.

are thicker strings usually brighter?

What kind les paul do you have? Try playing with the EQ settings on your amp.

^Nope, thicker tone usually.

And yea, boost bass, mids and volume, and use the neck pickup. That'll be a plentyful fat tone.

i have 10 - 60 guage strings so theyre not a problem

i have a tokai les paul copy, and its ****ing solid, but the pickups arent amazing so i was wondering if i should change em for 57 classics or whatever, or if i should just buy an od

i would use the neck pickup for one.
the tone knob on the guitar shouldnt be up all the way, it sounds fatter, but a little dull when turned somewhat down.(halfway)

Hmm, you could go to a shop with your guitar (make sure the shop has a Classic 30) and try out a few overdrive pedals, see what you think.

It'll be the cheap humbuckers... they tend to sound very thin. That's a nice amp, so don't worry about that.

Good luck man
