I'm looking to buy a les paul standard, preferrably one before '02 (heavier). I want pick ups that give more of a pure vintage tone...geat pick response, great note clarity, thick, & creamy. I play a early model jcm900 4100, so I already have the gain and I don't think I need high output pickups. I wish I could get some original PAF's but, I doubt that will happen so I'm looking at gibson classic 57 plus or Seymour Duncan Antiqutiy. If anybody has any input on these pick ups or any others that might achieve this sound, please let me know.
