I have burstbucker pros in my Gibson LPJ and I love them. The guitar gives me a big, warm and dynamic sound. The only bad thing I can think of is that because of the wiring, you cannot split these (to get single coil type sounds).

The guitar feels versatile to me and I have done both soft jazz/blues stuff and rock/metal with it.

I have never tried the Slash Alnico though.

I got mine when I bought the guitar, but after a quick look at Thomann webstore I think it looks like a good price.

I have Seymour Duncan Sh2 and Sh4 on my Les Paul and also my custom Lojo guitar. I love the gain and Eq balance of this pick ups.

I also like Slash models, I tried many guitars with them and sound really tasty to my ears.

I would spend a little more and get pick ups that could be split, in the end you will never regret making your guitar more flexible

^ Yes this is a valid point for sure. There is world out there with fantastic pickups and most can be split.

Hi Laurent!

Personaly i can recomend the following brands:

www.benedettipickups.com
www.crelpickups.com

These are high quality french made (i can see u live in France!) pickups and, the best part, you can really ask for a custom model (tone and looks!). Price is not too high compared to seymour or Bare pups.

i'll take a look

my main issue is about my budget, cause i like to upgrade my €pi les paul studio,, and i have buyed a Gibson, so it cost me a kidney !!

i have look for a lot of, brand new wilkson, tonerider, artec etc.... too cheap and not better than my €pi stock pickups,

i have miss another slahs pickups for 140€, but i do see why have two guitar with the same pickups...

So do these burstbucker pro do the job, and did they match with my play style ? here is the question !

I keep reading nice reviews about these pickups but never played them, might help if you're in a budget.

As for pickup selection, its really hard to recommend online, like there are known/famous models but also each pickup sounds different in every guitar...

I personally liked dimarzio's approach on picking the right pickup on their website; http://www.dimarzio.com/pickup-picker notice on step 3 it asks to pick "problem solver" and the options there are really a good way to ask/research when selecting pickups.

Can't comment much, do your reseach but from what I remember on various forums no one said anything bad about them (nor amazing)

regarding pickups, is there a difference between a coil tap and coil split, or is that just the same thing?

Have you seen Iron Gear Pickups? They are not expensive but they sound very good. They have a set which is based on a Slash type of tone called the Tesla Shark. Before I replaced the pickups in my LP with seymour '59's I was considering Iron Gear.

Here is a demo of Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Slash Vs Irongear Tesla Shark
