Gibson Les Paul Studio pickup Q`s


So I recently aquired a 2008 Gibson Les Paul Studio faded, kind of an ugly guitar but cool still, looks better with the pickguard removed and I ordered top hat style reflector knobs for that classic look.

Anyway my concern is the bridge pickup, it is a bit nassle for my ears, meaning it lacks a bit in the bottom and midrange, the neck pickup is really cool. I like a super hot chunky pickup as it can be rolled back, something like an SD Invader or my IBZ F2`s or even a D-activader. Now that`s talking Ibanez, so what do I do with this chambered LP???

I dont even know if this one has Burstbuckers of 490r/498t`s...??? Just haven`t had time to get into it. I dont really feel like joining a LP forum so I`ll try here.

Thanks!

Chops

+1 classic
BTW,, I think those came with a 498 in the bridge, but I could be wrong. I have a faded explorer and it has a 500T which I love, but I think the LPs had 498s

I just find it lacks character and fullness, but I`m odd like that, for some reason I like ceramic mag pickups, super distortion might be someting to look into, a classic and it`s ceramic, good call...
