I've just put a set of BKP PG Blues in my Les Paul and they sound great, I'm having a little trouble getting clarity and clean woodiness, it's just very slightly too boomy. I eq'd the amp (Rivera) for about an hour using as many combinations as I could find, even tried different picks. Then I had an idea; I'm using 11-49 strings. Are they too heavy for a Les Paul with alnico 2 pickups? Would 10's bring more clarity? What gauges do the likes of Peter Green and BB King use?
Your thoughts are most welcome.
