Do any of you find the Bridge pickup almost too trebly? Do you use it? And how do you make it sound good (Tone knob level, amp settings.)
I have a Gibson Les Paul Standard.

Too trebly? Gibson Les Pauls are usually very warm and chunky!

It's all preference on what you like, if it's too trebly, try turning down your treble on the amp, and roll down the tone knob a little bit for the treble pickup.

I don't find it trebly at all though, sometimes a bit muddy on certain les pauls.

drop your pickup, should give it a more warm sound

Actually my guitar is pretty bright for a Les Paul. So I roll the Tone knob down on the Bridge Pickup to 7, and same with my Rhythm Pickup, just because I like it like that.

Even if it's rolled all the way up, it still sounds very good, and not too bright or treble-y.

dropping your pickup means tightening the screws that hold it in place, so that the pickup is further away from the strings, you only have to turn the screws a little to hear the difference.

Tightening the screws makes it CLOSER to the strings...

I like it trebly, can we switch guitars? Without much treble my Epi sounds so damn muddy,
