3 Humbuckers


Recommended Posts

I modified my LP to have 3 humbuckers and i love the sounds i get with 3 volumes and a master tone i get a good mix and if i want i can turn the voluem all the way down on the middle so i have a normal setup. To me it seems a lot fuller sounding especially wen its about half middle with a full bridge bu then again its all personall preference here. And if set up correctly it wont get in the way

My first guitar was a white SG copy with 3 HB's...but really to get the real benifit from it you'd need an elaborate switching system...for instance you could split coils and combine with other splits of reverse polarity and get some unique straty phasoid flavours...but then do you want all those switches and stuff...maybe you do....

BTW I think the idea was to compete with Fender's 3 PUp strat...it makes more sense on a firebird with mini-humbuckers and such which really were designed to compete with the strat on a number of levels (colors, trem, design, pups, etc) albeit unsuccessfully...

On a Les Paul it always reminds people that "Peter Frampton Comes Alive"...something to consider I guess...
