About les paul classic 1990 pickups


Recommended Posts


I have  a 1990 les paul classic one from the first classis. I think that the original pickups are not so vintage for my blues rock taste. My problem always with lps is the a little bit muddy bassy neck. What pickups do you think are  the best for vintage blues sounds? Classic 57 or to go for sd seth lover o-  antiquities  or wizz for my lp? Your opinion would be very helpful

Not sure what pickups they were using in 1990, but '57 classics will give you a pretty good tone, even better might be the 61R and 61T that they put into the "classic" model Les Paul now.  I had a 2018 model with those pickups and it was very "vintage" sounding.
