I upgraded the Caps (capacitors) from the little chip to a Vitamin Q style .018 for rhythm (it sounded flat and the lower value cap makes it sound very solid) and a Vitamin Q .022 for treble to open it up.

I tried A/B testing with one end soldered and the other just held in place and the cap does give a warmer sound with more depth. This is a major bang for the buck upgrade.

I am on disability and plan on spend several hours per week upgrading Epiphone guitars and reselling them here. I manly have made in Korea models, but will also look at other interesting models.
