That's my Epiphone Nighthawk Special III, nice guitar, two humbuckers (one slanted) and a single coil, Strat type 5 way switch and a fulcrum type tremolo. It's a nice sounding guitar with great action. My lead guitarist likes it and feels it's very versitile. However I rarely let him play it because he breaks strings too often.

Huh cool. You don't see slanted bridge pickups on LPs like that and I think it looks awesome.

Here's a close up of the Gibson version, they don't have a curved top like a LP. Different tone as well, I don't think they're as muddy as a LP.

Unfortunately the bridge pickup can't be changed out with a Dimarzio or something similar. They're manufactured at that funky angle.

You might be able to of you carved some wood away, but yeah...nothing that I know of would be a direct replacement. Still, stock Gibson pickups (especially older ones) tend not to sound too bad!

You could get two single coils and wire them up as a humbucker...

They actually sound good as is, you can see in this pic my Epihone has different pickups than the Gibson. Rails as opposed to separate polls.

Woah! Don't touch them! Shocked

They're Bill Lawerence pickups he designed, if not made, for Gibson and Epiphone!

Are they considered good? I know they sound good but I don't know any details about the hardware.

with the ridiculous prices I have seen for OEM old pups, pots, pickguards, neckplates...hell even trusrrod covers going for 150.00 I wouldn't think a million, but quite a LOT of money in parts.

As Choder has said, they most definatly are! bounce

I love love love Bill Lawerence Pickups, I have a set in my Jazz bass, and the ones that come in the Roscoe Beck are his design too. Cool
