I missed this one from Gibson's "Guitar of the Month" series...this being GOTM from May 08...

Something for you guys that are always looking for pickups to try. Apparently, there's a Les Paul that you can just pop the pickups out and pop others in.

This version's US$4500 though. tongue.gif

Yep, this is actually the idea behind this guitar, and it is of course a nice one if you are changing pickups a lot. But to be honest, I might test some pickups from time to time, but as soon as I found the right one for a guitar it will never be changed again, so at least I don't really need this option.

Very cool, but how often would you want to change them out? For that price you could have a couple of guitars with different pickups... Thanks for sharing!

Great feature. If all pickups would support this standard, it would make things a LOT easier. It's one of those things that you say: " How come they haven't invent this before?" smile.gif

Hmmm. Every guitar shop should have this guitar so that we can try different pickups before buying one tongue.gif

That is a very good point. For a regular player who knows the sound, this is a good feature, but for stores this is "ideal" guitar. Too bad it is that expensive. Specs are top class tho.

Thought of something else for this...

Studios.

Have the guitar in house for recording and a stack of pickups to swap in and out. Gives a lot of possible tones in one guitar without having to have a rack of different LP's.

Also, the previously mentioned guitar shop demoing different pickups in LP's

Fortunately with this idea, everybody who knows around wood can use it. Just plug two wholes in the body, make brackets, and connectors for pickups. smile.gif

For studio work it might really be a nice thing to be able to change pickups fast.

If only it wasn't on a Les Paul. I think I'd vomit before getting to change the pick ups biggrin.gif

I'm sure other guitars will have the technology soon. Would be great for music shops and studio work. Not so great for the rest of the time though as it really isn't needed. I have 5 guitars with different pick ups.

A neat idea indeend, kind of similar to the idea that EMG have with their Quik-connect system where you can change different EMG-pickups with ease. It would be so great for the basic consumer if all the pickup and guitar company's would make their products with this idea in mind. Maybe one day smile.gif
