Hi Everyone, I am a beginner guitar player, and this is my first post on the forum... I have had a guitar in the closet for quite a few years I got from an old roomate, and finally going to break it out and start learning.
I am 57 years old, so have no inclination of ever gigging or becoming a rock star Just want to learn well enough so I can play after retirement for the pure enjoyment of it. (Blues/Classic Rock, to some hard rock)... I like all kinds of music, from Jimmy Buffet to Disturbed
My Guitar is a 1974 Les Paul Custom.... Mahogany back with Maple Neck and Fretboard... Gold Hardware.... My old roommate had changed the pickups... It currently has a SD Custom/Custom (SH-11) in the Bridge, and an SH-9 SilverBird in the neck.... There is lots of info on the Custom/Custom, but the Silverbird is rather Obscure and not a lot of information... (took me a while to cross reference the number 9n J....)
Are these 2 a good matchup? I read one post somewhere that a guy "operated" on his Silverbird and changed to a ceramic magnet, and that now it sounded "incredible" .... well, Incredible to him maybe, but to anyone else, who knows? I wouldn't even know how to do those kinds of Mods.
What little info I found on the silverbird is that is better suited for the bridge....
Would anyone recommend a better neck pickup to match the custom/custom (SH-11) that is in the bridge?
Any info and advice is appreciated
