Currently SD APH-2's in my standard,

Stock tradbuckers in my trad pro, might consider swapping them for something else but idk.

That's all for me these days.

I've tried low end pickups to high end boutique, some of them outrageously overcharging, and everything in between. All my Les Paul's now have some variation of Mojotone pickups installed. The best Les Paul sound to my ears.

I've got the Brandonwound JP#1 set. Favorite pickups so far. I've got a Slash set I got in a trade I'm thinking of dropping into a Burny SG.

Right now:

Brandonwound 59 PAF w/ Vintage Mags - '14 R7
BKP Riff Raff - 81 Tokai ES-100
BKP Mule - 82 Greco EG59-100

In my parts drawer/waiting:
Legends

Lots of great experiences with James @ ReWind too. Lately I've been digging the fatter "rock" voicing on BKP's vintage offerings - I use their Flat 50 set in a Tele and 63 Veneer Set in my Strat. I also use their nantucket p90s.

Brandonwound are amazing. Great guy too. I've got his JP#1 set but I'm going to buy more from him. Great pricing too.

Seymour Duncan Antiquity HBs with Page coil split, series/parallel, out of phase push pull pots with vintage wiring and capacitors from 920D in a ‘87 Std LP burst. Luv it
When you did the JP coil split did you do both pickups? I'm thinking of doing the same setup on mine.

2002 Epiohone LP II, stock(N), Gibson '57 Classic(B)
2000 Epiphone Les Paul Standard 60s ProBucker-2(N), ProBucker-3(B)
2021 Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s Limited-Edition (GC) Gibson Burstbucker 61R and 61T

2020 Epiphone Les Paul Special II Plus Limited-Edition (MF) in-progress replacement of stock 700T/650R. Pulled the bridge and replaced with Tonerider IV. (Not yet soldered.)

The ancient Epiphone bottom feeder is a decent player, and the '57 Classic in the bridge position is too sweet.

1) A pair of vintage Yamaha SG1000 pickups...love them they sound a bit like Alnico 2's, plenty of definition

2) Dimarzio Fred DP123 (bridge). Old Westone Thunder 1 wired as split coil only (neck - great clean open sound, something between a strat and a P90)
