I've been playing an American Deluxe Strat with noiseless single coils through a Vox AD30VT amp for the past 6 months. Just bought a Gibson Les Paul Vintage Mahogany with Burstbucker Pro pickups (my first guitar with humbuckers). Unlike the Strat, I find it very hard to get a good clean sound out of the Les Paul, the humbuckers seem to crunch much more easily, even with the guitar volume turned down. Is this typical? The Les Paul crunch is awesome, but i'm finding it hard to get the range of tones that I can easily get out of my Strat.
No announcement yet.
Clean tone - humbuckers vs. single coil
