    I'm back from playing one beach, and headed right back out to another, but I had to share this... Will Boggs pickups have changed my life. Fucking incredible all weekend. The guitar I have loaded with Will's 67-07's is the best sounding Les Paul I have ever ever ever ever fucking played. Ever. And it's an old Burny Black Beauty weith a repaired headstock. Oh my fucking god. The sustain, the harmonics, the bite... off the fucking hook. I've never had a Les Paul sing like this one does. It's a mahoghany-capped guitar, and it sounded good with it's original VH-1's, but Will's pickups are just insane. I had a very hard time putting it down all weekend - I played it in 12 sets altogther over 3 nights... Just thought I'd mention that... tonal nirvana is sooo much fun. :applause:

    So do you like it Frankie?



    How does it compare to Casper? Does it sustain as much?

    Different than Casper, just because they are 2 very different designs. But I'd say these pickups make the LP sing in the same way.... very 'live'... lots of complimentary harmonics... very creamy. I don't know how to put it into words, really. I'll do sound clips when I get a chance. Finally back from the beaches, but playing tonight locally.
