    Hello all!

    I just installed a Seymour Duncan Black Winter pickup set in my Gibson Les Paul Studio. While I enjoy the tones I can get out of the 498/490 pickups that came with the guitar, curiosity got the best of me and I had to try these Black Winters. In short, I'm a fan of them. The dirty/distortion/overdrive tone is very tight and handles lower tuning extremely well, while the clean tone is clear and doesn't have the muddiness that the stock pickups could get on occasion. Here are some videos giving a rough idea of the tone:

    Clean


    Dirty

    Thank you! I suppose I should have taken more pictures when I was installing them, but I did take this "before" picture of the work bench:
