Im looking for new pickups to put on les paul what pickups should I get?

my favorite guitarists are John Frusiante(RHCP), Buckethead, Jimmy Page(Led Zep.), and Dave Knudson(MTB & Botch).

I play everthing through my fender hot rod deluxe that I put a jensen in.

My les paul is heavliy modded with 2 push/pull coil spliting pots master tone, master volume, push button killswitch, 2 dpdt switchs one for phase reversal and one for series/parallel switching Iam also mite put in a pre amp to raise the can without affecting the tone when I change the pickups


thanks in advance

SD Alnico II is a really nice pickup, and I think it works for both positions.
Alvarez dreadnought
Gibson SG
EC-1000
Homemade Strat (seymour duncan classic stack p/ups)
Vox Tonelab (original desktop model) with full board footswitch
Vox AD50

a '59 model would be good in the bridge too, but u might like the pearly gates pickup also.

and the alnico II would be too low output, u'd need a pedal to go with it, or crank the amp really loud.

p90s sound to thin

and the alinco II might be good, even with the low output the pre amp would fix that

Yeesh, sounding like all those guitarist might be a stretch with a Les Paul. You'll need some clever EQing to get a John Frusciante tone with an LP, seeing as how he uses a Stratocaster. Good luck.

^he might be able to hack it with the coil splitting and some eq changes.

stuff from gibson are overpriced. SD pickups, wolfetone, lindy fralin, swineshead, bareknuckle pickups. they're all good.

Try DiMarzio PAF Pros. Kinda pricy though, $70 each or $120 a set. Try playing some first before buying though.
