A client of mine wanted a JB installed in the bridge position of his new 1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom. Since I was going to do the work anyways, I figured I might as well record what the sound differences might be.

The JB is over twice as hot as the original ttop bridge pickup so it will obviously sound hotter and be better suited to higher gain. However, I still think these are both great sounding pickups and that there isn’t really a clear winner – it really depends on the sound you’re going for. A used ttop will run $150-$200 where as a JB will run you about $80.
