I have an Epi Les Paul Custom and i just cant seem to get enough mids and highs, ive played it through some different amps and i come up with the same thing.

I have stock pickups, could that be it?
If it is, i was thinking about the 57 Plus for the bridge.


Any input would help a bunch.
Thanks

the pickup change will help out and the one you suggested is one that i would too.

what amps are you playing through? And what tone are you looking for?

i say both. you always have the option to not use the pedal at all but it will still be there like that obsessed chick you took to homecoming and never called again, sitting there waiting for your call. so yea both

currently, im playing threw a AD30VT, i know its nothing special, but i just cant dish out the cash for an AC30.

Im looking for a tone thats real warm, and has enoughmids and highs to cut threw if i wanted it to.

So you have used the tone knobs and it's still not enough mids and high? If you are going to get new pickups check out www.sheptone.com and http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQfrppZ25QQsassZsheptoneQ5fguitarQ5fpickups i have stumbled upon them and they seem to be pretty sweet.

Those vox hybrid amps do tend to lean towards a warmer bassier tone. A pickup choice is probably your best bet, or consider an EQ pedal if you just want a boost for your upper end.

Alright, thanks all.
Ill probably just get the 57 plus.

The'57 isn't a bright pickup. It's probably not going to solve your problem. An EQ pedal would probably be your best bet. That or a really bright pickup like a Dimarzio Super 2 or something

I agree with the above comments on trying out an EQ pedal first. A Danelectro Fish & Chips EQ can be had rather inexpensively, and without modification to the guitar. If it's STILL not what you're looking for, it's not so expensive that it knocks new pickups out of the ballpark either.

I could pick up a 57 plus for 50 bucks off my buddy that didnt even use it.
So do you think i should try the EQ or the pickup?

Read the comments. You've got 4 people that say try the EQ route. If it doesn't work, return it and buy the pickup.
