Gibson Les Paul DC Special 2015 -- P90 slug neck -- DiMarzio P90 size Super Distortion bridge
Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 -- DiMarzio Air Classic neck -- DiMarzio Norton bridge
Gibson LPJ 2013 -- BG Smokestack set



Not sure I like the bridge-position Norton in my Traditional. I have the same pickup in an Epiphone and it sounds great. Funny how different guitars make the same pickups sound different.

The BG Smokestacks in my LPJ are maybe my favorite pickups ever. They are sort of like a JB but with more lower-mids and bass.

How are u liking these, i have a set on order from EBay

I was Surprised by them but have to say only played it over my boss katana mini and a horrible black star(i just can't get to like them) . Better than the original pickups in my old epiphone tho by miles!
Can't compare to the ones in the epiphones, don't have any.

Just curious to see what pickups are out there in your Les Pauls
I currently have:
SDuncan CS Pearly Gates-Unpotted
Gibson Custombuckers-Unpotted
SDuncan CS Bonamassa Amos-Unpotted
SDuncan CS Angus Young-Potted




Gibson 59 Tribute Humbuckers that came with my 2015 Traditional. Tried Monty's and Pearly Gates and when I got my Marshall DSL20HR I put the Tributes back in. Might try some Wizz or others in the future but very satisfied with the Tributes now. Easy to control with the DSL.

In my 2007 R8, I've got a set of 2008 Throbak SLE-101 + LTD humbuckers. (NOS wire)

In my 1963 Les Paul Junior, I've got the stock Gibson P90. :)

You certainly like Seymour Duncan!
I personally use the Tonerider Rocksong set
I do, I’ve had so many sets of pickups over the years but I just really like the sound of Duncan Custom shop pickups, they just have a character to their sound I like
The Custombuckers are standard in my 59 60th and they are staying put

My #1 has a Dimarzio SD in the bridge and a 36th Anniversary in the neck.
My #2 has 36th Anniversary in both.
My Juniors have Lollar, Vineham, and SD P90s.
