• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I put Alnico V's in my Antiquities


LPF Tone Chaser

thanks for the info Mark and 60Burst

...so i won't spend any time with Fralins because i'm looking for "transparent" and not too dark tone.
I love moded Antiquity's in my 59 Historic but i want something different for my 58.
I dont want them both sound the same...

...so it seems that HD's or Holmes or even Burstbuckers would be good choices for my 2nd guitar ?

I play in a Plexy 100W reissue running with 2 EL34 power tubes (so it runs 50W), and 4X12 Greenbacks.
Gaston play on a vintage Plexy 100W and 4X12 Vintage 30's, AND for small gigs, guess what... a little Fender Pro Junior !
But i have to say that Gaston's Historic does not sound "the same" as my Historic, but both sound so Good :wow We can clearly hear the different voices of each guitar...or pickups.
