Why isn't this done? I think it is really good - you get all the wonderful characteristics of a single coil, but with more thud and sustain. I'm thinking about buying a Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute and putting some seymour duncan alnico II single coils in. People are always putting humbuckers in strats, so why not put single coils in les pauls? I find that humbuckers in les pauls can be muddy, and single coils in strats can be too harsh and thin. What do you think?
