So, it's not any news...but the stock 490R and 498T in my Les Paul Custom kinda suck. I've been looking at whats out there and I'm kinda stumped as the market's got all sorts of little goodies begging for my attention.
Nordstrands, Dimarzio, Anderson, Suhr, EMG 57/66, Duncan's usual suspects as well as their new contenders (nazgul, black winter),
Lace have a variety of good looking options out there these days as well, hell I'm even giving fastback pickups some serious thought.
I definitely lean more towards a bit of versatility between rhythm and treble but they gotta be able to jive on the middle position too.
What're your favorite pickups in a Les Paul, and what do you play?
I've a SD Distortion in the bridge of my Custom, it's the tits.
