Title: Recommend me some pickups
Post by: HeyNorton! on July 09, 2018, 03:39:17 pm
Hi guys, I am looking for a set of pickups for an esp Ltd eclipse (les paul basically). I have one with a pair of 36th anniversaries in it.  The other has the stock POS still in it.

First off, I love everything about the 36s.
What I am looking for is the next step or two hotter for the bridge pickup.  I want to cover some harder rock and older school metal type of stuff.

I will most likely put some sort of paf type neck pickup in it.

Thanks in advance.

I love the PAF Masters for the very reason that they're like a hotter version of the PAF 36ths. You should give it them a shot!

Louder PAFs?

Try the Titan set.

The PAF Masters hotter than the 36th??  It does not look that way according to Dimarzio's own output numbers.

Yeah that's a weird thing. Even though the numbers say otherwise, tonally they feel a bit hotter through the same amp and settings.

Although looking at the original posters question again, maybe I should change my recommendation.
