Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Just ordered a set of the SLE-101 Plus pickups with a short A5 in the bridge for a little beefier lead tone. Anyone else put Throbaks in a Les Paul? How have they held up?

    They're headed for my R5...

    Sound great in an LP...or in any humbucking guitar for that matter...like the A5s better than the A2s...give you almost single-coil-like clarity and stay clear even under copious amounts of gain...

    Of the hums I have tried...definitely in my Top 5...

    As always there are tons of great choices now days and it's a question of needs and setup as to whether they are the ultimate set for you...

    Agree that top is awesome!

    You should ask this question over on the LPF! These pups rule over there and for good reason. Beautiful guitar too!
