I recently picked up a 2014 Les Paul Classic, which is an incredibly bright sounding guitar (unplugged as well as plugged in). It came stock with Gibson’s Classic/Super 57 pickups, which are very bright in their own right. I’ve also played a few other LP Classics in the last year or so. All are much brighter sounding than what remember a typical Les Paul being. In fact, all of these sound brighter even than my old SG with an ebony fretboard. does anyone know what’s going on with these LPs? Is the “modern” weight relief? Something else about their construction? Also, what’s up with Gibson putting thin sounding pickups into already bright sounding guitars?
