I don't post here that often because everyone already knows more than me, but I try and read here everyday. I just picked up a '94 Les Paul Special and I believe it has P-100's stock. I want to put some new P-90's in, but am having trouble deciding. The Lollars get great reviews here, but I am wondering about the Rio Grande set as well. The Rio Grande pup's seem to be wound hotter. I need something that responds well to picking dynamics and my guitar's volume knob. I will be playing through my Orange Rockerverb 50 head w/ 2x12 cab. I'm not necessarily looking for a vintage sound, I want something hotter than stock but definetly not metal. I tend to like medium output pickups in the humbucker world (I like the pickups in my SG standard 490R/498T), but really liked what I was getting out of this LP Special. I just need some added umph. Suggestions?
