Hi all, After some pickup advice! I recently bought a Gibson Les Paul Special (2019) model, and while I love the way it plays and feels, every time I plug it in I'm always very underwhelmed. I usually play a Tele through a Marshall Origin or an Orange amp (mostly clean with a Wampler PlexiDrive pedal, touch of reverb and chorus, phaser 90, or with a Fuzz.). Always play my Teles with on the bridge pickup, with tone rolled off a little, a Strat (usually bridge/middle), or a Gibson SG with p90's (usually bridge or both, again tone rolled off slightly). I play mainly classic rock, blues, Zep etc so go for a chimey overdriven tone, pretty big on mids. The LP Special consistenly sounds very dark and muddy, even on the bridge pickup - it's pretty 'dead' with no character, almost like there's a blanket over the speaker. I have set it up according to the Gibson guide, and also the Lollar guide. I then tried myself, listening to the amp as I went, but no dice. It's 'better' now, but there is no chime or subtelty there at all, just thick heavy mud The people I jam with have now started to say 'why not use another guitar, that one sounds way too muddy' - which I take a sign that it's not just me hearing things. My SG with p90s give some real clarity while sounding much thicker than a Strat SC - it has some really sweet overdriven tones. I assumed I'd get similar on the LP. Any ideas on what to try next, or what other pickups will give me the tone I'm after? I was thinking Lollar or Lindy Fralin? Any info appreciated!
