Is it just mine or has anyone else noticed that the pickups in this model are off the charts fantastic? Mine are seriously powerful with no feedback and tons of thump.

These are by far the best pickups I have ever played in any Gibson or any Historic. I usually change at least the bridge PUPs in all of my LPs but not these they are just incredible sounding.

Played it through a Marshal Astoria today and with the boost on it was insane how heavy they sounded without any mud whats so ever... Never heard Gibson Pups that could get into that area of tone...


Just badass....

I had no intention of buying the guitar but when I went to look at a couple of others the dealer brought this out. Picked it up and sold. One of the top guitars I have ever played...

Thanks

Yes, off the charts...
Mine is also very loud acoustically without being plugged in. Everyone who picks it up comments on that too.
My CC#34 impresses the hell out of me and that's what counts.

if its loud not plugged in it has nothing to do with the pickups. Its a good piece of wood maybe.
