I have an Epiphone Les paul Special 2 (i know shoot me first guitar =[), and it has the pickups where theyre like humbucker shape right, but only one have of them have magnets. And I read somewhere around here that if i rotate them it will make my guitar sound different. Will it?

If your vegetarian girl harasses you about eating meat, snap back with, "Eating more entirely defenseless plants that provide us with oxygen?"

That'll shut that bitch up faster than two black eyes.

Ones that you'll never see.

EDIT: What did you mean by his bouncy tone? That explains pretty much nothing.

If you reverse one of the pickups they become out of phase which gives a slightly different tone. It doesn't matter if the pickup looks like it has no magnets; it does, trust me, they're just covered.

Covered with screws?

Screws, metal plastic, whatever, if you look at different kinds of pickups they come in all sorts of different styles: standard bobbins without covers that have 12 pole-pieces; covered humbuckers like the ones on a les paul with 6 pole pieces or some like EMGs or Tony Iommi's signature pickups that have no visible pole pieces at all.
