Hello Folks
I have a 2002 Gibson Les Paul Studio and was was wondering has anybody had experience with Bare Knuckle Mule vs Seymour Duncan Seth Lover Sh-55 vs Klein '59. There weren't enough options for a Gibson 57 Classic. But it's an option for me as well.

How would they sound in the thinner bodied studio's?

Your recommendations are highly appreciated
Cheers

Out of those listed, I'd start with Seth Lovers in a Studio. Mules tend to be rather dark speaking of the two sets I've had. The Seth's should work well with the mahogany :)

My Mules aren't dark at all. They were the perfect match for my Les Paul and will never leave that guitar.

Odd, I had a set that were wax potted and really dark in my 09 Traditional so I sold them off. I then got a set that were not potted and they had the same darkness in the Trad (of course the guitar had a lot to do with it) so I tried them in my 07 Standard Faded that's a terribly bright guitar and they were a perfect fit. It tends to like darker pickups and brighter ones get shrill.

The poll isn't representative, but more seem to favor Bare Knuckles than SH-55's

You didn't ask, but I'm still digging the Sheptone Tributes. :thumb:

Has anybody tried the SD Antiquity in a Studio (thinner body, thinner maple cap)?
