My recently acquired 2002 standard did not come with burstbuckers and I am considering the above two choices. I tend to like bright pickups As long as they are not shrill. Opinions?
I’m thinking about buying used 10 year old burstbuckers from a friend so I don’t know how they would compare to current production.I mean, to be honest they sound good the new burst buckers. Just not interesting, to play very easy to get the tone out. U don’t have to work much. Like new gibsons are all very good and makes it easy for the player to get the Gibson sound.
IDK. I find all Burstbuckers, whether 1/2, Pros, 59/61s, etc bright.
They are not terribly CLEAR in every guitar, but I'd consider them all bright, with maybe the #3 being an exception.
Unpotted examples are the best, if you can find them.
