    What's your favorite pickups?

    What the title asked. What pickups do you like for your LP reissues? I'll start. Personally, I like the stock CustomBucker, BurstBucker 1 & 2, BK Mule/Riff Raff and BK Mule/Black dog. I've also tried other combinations of those pickups, which also sounded great to me. Specifically...

    Pickup Question re. 1981 Greco EGC 500

    Hi folks - longtime reader, brand-new poster. Just picked up a 1981 Greco EGC 500. I was expecting it to have Maxon UD pickups inside it, as that's what usually came stock with EGC 500s of this era. But the number code on the pickup looks more like what you'd expect on Maxon Dry Z pickups of...

    Love my new Gibson zebra 57/57 super pups!

    Installed them (vintage 2014) on my Gibson LPM. About a 1.5 step volume knob less hot than originals but much more balanced across the frequency spectrum and warmer overall. Also seem more articulate and were easy to balance with my rig. With my Jonesy 50's wiring, volume & tone controls have...
