Hey guys, I'm going to change my pickups in my Epiphone Les Paul, I'm really leaning towards an SH-2 (jazz) i nthe neck and either an SH-5, SH-4 or SH-6 i nthe bridge, do you guys think this would be a good combo and workout ?

thx

SH-5 and Jazz sounds like a winner to me then

As far the other ones are concerned, the JB (SH-4) is too trebly for my tastes and the SH-6 might be a bit too aggressive really depends on the kind of tones you want though. The SH-5 sounds just about perfect for you though. The Jazz should do well in the neck, possibly consider the '59 maybe...

Yup - screw the JB and the Distortion....either the Custom or Custom 5 in the bridge with a 59 in the neck. The choice between Custom and Custom 5 really boils down to how much metal you're likely to play and also the kind of tone you want.

If you want a very versatile combo, then the jazz 2n in the neck and a sh-4 jb in the bridge is probably your best bet with seymour duncans. like someone above said a '59 in the neck might not sound too bad either
#11
The Jazz wouldn't be the best choice for the neck, to be honest. The '59 is much nicer in my opinion.

pfft, wot a noob. internet forum etiquette dictates you use either LoL or hehe, not both.



oh and i agree with steven seagull. haven't tried the custom or custom 5, but based on the custom custom which i have tried, it's a better bet. '59 would indeed be a better bet for the neck pickup- it's really very nice in a LP- quite vintage-sounding, but with enough edge to handle some overdrive too.

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.
