i have a paf joe in neck
do you think it's really different from sh1, sh2, sh6 or classic 57 with basswood?
or other dimarzio?
which pickup will be a les paul sound, very warm in neck but can be stratty to?
paf joe is good but thin, weak, not fat
The Classic '57 will give you that fat sound. A/B any solidbody guitar with an old school Gibson PAF with another solidbody and what you will hear mostly is that PAF. It's a testament to how great that design was.
Unplugged you can play a tele with a Gibson humbucker in neck and it will sound different than a 335 unplugged or a Les Paul Custom unplugged but when you plug it in you largely have that same fat sound the PAF is famous for. I have had 60+ guitars including expensive vintage pieces and we all love the romantic notion of different woods and construction. Nobody wants to think the sound is derived from your fingers and then your pickup, and little else. It's bad for all those wood aficionados!
But as long as we are talking solidbodies and most semi-hollowbodies, you core sound will be that of the pickup, especially if it's a really fat old school PAF in the neck. You won't get stratty per se, but do the Peter Green thing and invert it, and put in push pull pot so you can get that stratty tone in the middle position. If you don't want to play the rewiring game, play middle position for three humbuckers, put one volume +2 or -2 from the other volume knob, as on a Les Paul or SG control setup, and you will get a less sustaining stratty tone. But to revert back to full humbucker tone, put both volume controls back to 10. Experiment with this and you will be amazed at the range you could pull from messing with volume and tone controls .
Also to show the difference between a top pro and the rest of us, Roy Buchannan pretty much summed it up by getting a Les Paul tone from his Telecaster or Telecaster tone from his Les Paul all with his attack on guitar.
