Not much of a tone difference between all 3 pups. I was using the neck pup to try and get a Garcia sg tone, and it just wasnt there. Maybe it was the pickups. But i was playing through a Super Reverb so that was a treat.
The SG is Gibson's idea of a plank guitar, it would make sense that the Epi could only be equal to the sum of its parts. Planks are Fender territory. Those pups are crammed in there so tight that it would be easier to get a range of tones from 3 different pups than 3 that are all the same. Maybe this is evidence to support the theory that two HB's is better than three. On an Epi SG, anyway.
