    Just got a Love Rock as a Les Paul Sampler and I will need to change out the pickups. The neck is great and even though it is one of the Korean models it plays well. Any suggestions for pickup replacement?

    Well I went all the way to japan to buy mine. The japanese models are harder to find if you arent able to go to japan, they really are meant for the japanese market and really intended for export. There are a few that make it over here though, check ebay if you want a japanese model. You can buy a korean model from a few different websites online or off ebay more easily.

    Fat humbucker sound. I've got a strat, tele and a couple of P-90 PRS guitars so I want the fat Les Paul sound to see if I might head that way to. Thanks for all the help guys.

    A few customers I've had told me they tried out SD '59's and thought it gave the guitar that little extra beef they wree looking for. The stock pickups in the MIKs aren't that bad but a good pickup makes a world of difference in any guitar.

    Maybe Gibson '57 Classics.

    or check out the websites for DiMarzio, SD, WCR, etc listen to some sounds.
