Hi all, I have a Gibson Les Paul Std 2001 fitted with the 490R/498T Gibson PUPS, i was fairly happy with its sound untill that is i picked up a cheap china made Epi 56 GT with the p90 PUPS, the Epi flat out rocks!, clean or with overdrive.
The Gibson in direct comparison is lifeless and muddy and lacks expression.
So i must be the only person who wants to make his Gibson sound like an Epi!
I am thinking off replacing the Gibson PUPs with some Phat Cats. Any one have experience of phat cats in a Les Paul?
Will this bring the Gibson back to life?
I am mainly a strat player, i play mostly blues with a fair amount of overdrive.
Thanks in advance.
