ive just been playing the intro of oasis - cigarettes and alcohol and wasnt really liking the sound i was getting from my lp, no clarity in the riff at all so switched to my vintage v100. it sounded much clearer with the v100 to my suprise.
both guitars are mahogany bodies and if anything the v100 is more weightier than the lp. would pickup change help with clairty of my lp and if so any recomendations?
1)Firstly the LP may have 300k ohm pots in it for vol and tone - swap these for 500k or even better 550k (the CTS/BKP ones are fab)
2)Wire it in 50s wiring configuration
3)swap the cast alloy tailpiece for a n aluminium one
4)have an earvana compensated tuning nut fitted
Then see how you like the sound and consider new pickups at this point (i'd go for something not too high an output)

Buy a Les Paul from Feline instead. If that's not feasible just send it on over to him - problem solved. Really.

Change the pups, make sure the pots are 500k.
I had a muddy Les Paul and I put Bare Knuckle Riff Raffs in it a couple of weeks ago. I haven't tried it with all my gear yet, but so far I think it sounds great. There's a lot more clarity and definition as well as top end presence, and I don't think I'll change pickups in this guitar again. It's a keeper now.
