Tried Burstbucker 2. Not that muddy, but has a boomy bottom I don't like. Tried a 57 classic. Way too muddy/bassy. Tried Dimarzio 36th. Not muddy, but has a thumping bottom end that I don't care for and is voiced too aggressively in general. Maybe it's the Les Paul that makes them muddy. IDK. And before someone says "get a Tele" or something along those lines, I have multiple and it can't get as tight/compressed as a humbucker guitar obviously. My Charvel with a JB pickup isn't boomy at all. I think maybe there's some inherent bassiness to Gibsons that I don't care for. EDIT: A lot of people said to lower pickups and inquired about amp/settings. I did lower the pickups and that did seem to help a fair amount. These are 57 classics currently in the guitar. The amp in question was a 50 watt plexi. 2x12 with G21H speakers. I had the eq with bass at 0 and treble/presence around 4 oclock. It was still pretty dang bassy. After lowering both pickups, it seems better.
