According to Gibson service my special has P-100's. I haven't had time to 'take the lid off' yet and have a look so I can only go on what they say but I suspect they are right.

This is what Gibson service sent me:
Attached File  LPJrSpc.jpg (52.29K)
Number of downloads: 20
The guitar plays beautifully but I was wondering if there is anything to be gained by replacing the pick ups and, if so, what does anyone suggest?

Also I notice 'junior' is mentioned in the write-up but I was under the impression the junior was a single pick up machine?

Cheers,

-Mick

I believe that is why yours is called a 'Special'. But, usually Specials (SG's, Les Pauls) have two P90's.

Thanks, I ended up having a look at the pups and they are definitely P100's. No biggy, it's just nice to know what you've got [thumbup]
