I bought a Les Paul in 2003, and I've grown to hate the thing. I went so far as to set it up for slide (and then left it in the case, because I never play slide). I've decided, however, to give it a second chance. Maybe it's the Burstbuckers I hate so much. I play mostly '60s-'70s rock (Rush, Thin Lizzy, Allman Bros., etc.), and I'm looking for the clearest tone possible. I do not want high output. I want something that will let my amps shine through as much as possible. I'm looking primarily at Fralin, WCR, and other smaller pickup builders. What say you?
