I've decided that i want to replace the pickups on my epiphone les paul. I'm looking for a classic rock kinda sound, led zeppelin style. Budget is £200.

Led Zeppelin pre-1973 - PAF clones
Led Zeppelin 1973-on - T-top clones

PAFs have fat and warm character, T-tops have bright and clean character. Look at Bareknuckles since you're in the UK. Mules for PAF type, Riff Raff for T-top type.


Jimmy Page custom pickups are based on his Seymour Duncans which are hotter than the pickups he used when he was with Led Zeppelin.

In the UK? Definitely look into a set of Silverbacks from here:

Email Chris, or PM him on UG; his username is CorduroyEW. He can help you out with your tone and to a degree, custom one of his pickup designs so it's tailored to you. Plus, there's a 10% discount for UGers.
I think a set of Silverbacks would be perfect for the PAF tone you're looking for.
