I went down the rabbit hole and tried swapping the stock custombuckers in my M2M R7/8 which I thought already sounded great to see if boutique PAF clones will make a difference. Went with the Righteous Sounds RAF set based on positive reviews I had seen stating they give a more clear tone...
I´ve been having a weird issue with my Gibson Les Paul. Seems like the neck pickup is having some kind of capacitance issue, where first you can´t hear shit, and suddenly it explodes into the beautiful sound of a lp. The bridge pickup seems to be OK.
Here are some samples...
