    Oh, c'mon. You know better than that around here!

    Epiphone Mini-humbuckers; isn't that the original LP Deluxe pickup?

    They call this behavior "TGP".

    If we're talking historical significance, i.e., gamechangers:

    PAF
    Super Distortion
    JB
    81

    My personal favorites are typically found in sets:

    Super Distortion/PAF 36th
    L500XL/'59
    81/60
    Barenuckle Nail Bomb
    Parallel Axis TB2/TB Stack x 2
    Evo2/Air Norton
    85/SLV/SLV

    Mare: "Josie/Vaughn" Strat pickups...ended my mid 60's tonal chase:)!

    PRS: 635 pickups in the Silver Sky...they got it right for the mid 60's sound!

    The only guitar I can ever recall playing and saying "damn those pickups sound good" was a early 80's LP Custom with T-tops.

    Lollar Special T bridge is easily the most amazing, versatile, dynamic pickup I've experienced.

    And the same can be said for the Lollar Special in the bridge position of a Strat.
