What pickups do I have?

Recommended Posts

Hey! Just recently joined here because a few day ago I acquired a KoreanĀ (Samick) Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 made in 2001. I love the neck on this guitar! I'm used to Telecasters and this thing just seems to play itself! Anyway, the switch was wonky and while I was in there replacing that I converted it over to 50's wiring. It sounds just fine to me, in spite of the fact that many have said Epiphone humbuckers are muddy, overwound and generally useless. I'm getting useable tones in all three positions, which begs the question...

What pickups are in this thing? They're your basic black humbuckers with "Epiphone" stamped onto the brass baseplate. Thanks in advance!
