Ever Put Old Pickups in a New Les Paul?

I bought an old Les Paul once, it was my first one and sadly I didnt have any experience with them, it wasn't until I sold it and bought another one some years later that I realised that the first one was very special, it had a warmth and nuances that my current Les Paul doesn't have even after trying various expensive pickups, it just doesn't even come close, so now playing my Les Paul is a very sad lacking experience and I just cant enjoy it. For all I know that first Les Paul could have had original PAFs.
Once you taste a guitar that nice its hard to settle for anything less. I often wonder if the reason ebay is full of modern Les Pauls is because people are not getting even close to the holy grail Les Paul tone and are selling up and trying to get an older one.
