Hi all, As of yesterdya, I'm the owner of a 2010 Epiphone Les Paul siverburst. Second hand and in need of some TLC. My inital idea was to get a Gibson silverburst. I will stripping her of all components (leave the paint!) and going for the best she can be. As I'm quite good with a soldering iron I will solder my own electronics, a (real) bone nut will be cut, bridge and stop tail will also be renewed. Only the tuners will remain from the original hardware. They're Grovers, and I don't 'need' locking tuners. I won't be going for coil splitting and all that stuff, just good solid electronics. But, I'm still on the fence about the pickups. What I do want is to retain the "nickel covers" look, so this limits the choices a bit. My first thought was a JB (SH-4) and Jazz (SH-2N) set. Classic, but good. There is a bit of a budget (around 200-ish), and I don't feel the need for a pair of fishmans or lundgrens or whatever. As the guitar (and finish) might already hint at. It will be used for Tool covers. But also for clean stuff and your typical rock-with-a-Les-Paul such as Zeppelin. I already have a high-gain monster with Gravity Storms that really sings, so I'll be looking for something a bit more subtle. Ballsey, but not muddy, I hate mud. Guitar body is mahogany, with a carved alder top (why epiphone, why) and a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard (again, why... should have been ebony). Looking forward to your suggestions, and maybe, just maybe, someone here already has the same guitar and a great setup.
