    I´m gonna change the bridge pup in my trad pro (bb3). I just find it bright, thin and ice picky. I dont realy know what kind of tone im looking for, something beefy. The guitar itself is quite bright. Neck pu is a classic 57. Coilsplitable is a biiig plus.

    57 Classic Plus. BBs are harsh. 57s are smoother. They're what a Les Paul is supposed to sound like.

    Yeah, those were my first choice. I can´t seem to find a coilsplitable version of them though =/

    Duncan Custom 5 is a great LP bridge pickup

    Check into the BB Pro. They are fullers sounding that the BB 1-3. If you was think as hell, check into the Rio Grande BBQ bucker. That is one super thick pickup.

    If you wanna spend a bit more you can check out Wolfetone pickups and get them custom wound to your exact specs.
