• 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!

Hey folks, I have a '62 330 single pickup TC. It has a unique voice with the centered pickup position. Anyone else into these oddballs? Gibson would have been eons ahead of their time if the pickup was in the fashionable metal '80s bridge position...

I've got one. They are very interesting, and normally really nice guitars.
I sure like mine. :)

As for the pup position, Gibson did that starting in 1954, with the Les Paul Junior. It was still suitable for metal [and a lot more!] decades later. :yah
