57/57+ is a bananas setup...Lol, I mentioned a few posts up that I found a nice set of gold 57 classic pickups that I'm gonna try out in this guitar. Nothing wrong with the stock pickups at all, but I want something a little less hot for this guitar, and these 57s popped up at just the right time for an awesome deal. If I like the 57s in the Classic, I may put the 496/500 combo in a dual HB baritone tele build I'm working on. Gonna wait on the inlays for now.
they sound so perfectly les Paul....I am a huge 57 classic pup family fan....
cant go wrong...and if u solder like me, u leave a silver bulb of toothpaste on everything so swapping em back doesn’t require finding the solder because u lay enough to use for maybe 8 more swaps
