    I think depends in what mood I'm in. Most days I'd go for JP's #1, but you have omitted Paul Kossoff's burst so that would be up there. Then again I can't resist Greenies or EC's Beano either.
    Don't suppose that as helped much.:thumb:

    Kossoff was the one on my list that just missed the cut. I LOVE the tone of that Lester. Check out youtube for a live tv studio version from the Marquee of "All Right Now". THICK

    1958-Reissue with the thick neck

    Gibson’s legendary Burstbucker pickups deliver all the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone by using historically “unmatched” bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets.
    Other historical appointments include CTS potentiometers, bumble bee capacitors,


    Peter Green's/Gary Moore's Burst
