Hello! I'm new to this forum so hi everyone! kek Anyways, I've recently acquired a 'vintage' Epiphone Les Paul MIJ made in the 90's (That's why the inverted comma cos it's not that old). Cleaned the guitar up and gave it a good polish and stuff. When I've gotten it, it came with Sheptone BK Set and to be it always sound quite compressed when I gunned it at high gain. Too compressed for my liking anyways. I always wanted it to open up more when I pushed it into High Gain cos I play mostly Blues Rock so yea... I'm looking at a few pickup selections but the one that stood out to me the most are the Gibson BurstBuckers (1 and 2 to be specific) but I've poked around and one had mentioned that the BK set is an upgrade over the BB. Not sure if it's 100% true or not because I've another Les Paul which is the more recent Epiphone Plustop that has Probucker which was suppose to be based on the BurstBuckers and I really love that sound slightly more. Tried several Traditional Les Paul that has BB 1/2 set and they sound nicer (to me anyways) than any of my two guitars. Any inputs would be nice... Should I swap it out for the BurstBucker or are there any similar set of pickups that may cost lesser because we all know Gibson stuff is expensive. Are there also any other pickup that will sound like the pickups that comes with the True Historic '59? Just curious.
