Simple question I guess... but what came stock in the 68 Les Paul. If it is something that isn't being made today, what are the tonal equivalents that can be found today? Thanks!

Thanks! So, these aren't especially powerful/hot pickups then from what I can tell?

No. By that time Gibson had automated the winding process and most T-Tops are really similar, unlike PAFs. They almost always read in the 7.8k DC resistance range.

However, if memory serves, Gibson's "distortion" pickups of the 1970s (i.e. "Dirty Fingers") had T-Top bobbins, too (somebody correct me), and those are way hot and middy, in the 15k range. But that's not what would have come in a '68 LP.
