    I guess this is the thread to ask.

    I picked up a cheap Epi Dot today and it's MIC. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for pick-ups that would be an upgrade. I've actually never owned a guitar with humbuckers even though I've been playing for 25 years. Already sounds good but I know that some nice hand-wound vintage replicas can make a big difference.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Artec Hex 7...it's not Overly Wound. But some...it's just ok. I think it sounds like a Duncan wannabe. like 16k or something like that....

    It's sounds like Ferrite atomicness. absolute high creation that axe lol.

    I’ve been thinking about trying some new pickups in my 1999 LP Classic. I have a Gibson 490 and 498 in there right now. I’m actually kind of afraid to even start looking into this world, especially after seeing that list of companies in the first post. I love the sound of original PAF Les Pauls, 58/59 era. I’d want aged nickel covers since my guitar is aged a bit. Can anyone make this easy for me? lol
