Black Epiphone Les Paul Standard UPGRADED
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-09-27)
Price : US $300.00
This thing is a MONSTER. Guaranteed to sound nothing like a stock Epiphone, this guitar is modded and wired to growl and scream with the best of them. The vintage-voiced neck pickup has a warm, deep tone perfect for cleans and rock tones, while the hot bridge is great for anything from jazz to metal with a twist of the volume knob. I re-wired it myself to 1959 specs, and it totally opened up the sound. I always heard of the vintage Les Paul growl, and now I know what they meant. The only flaws on this are cosmetic - just a few dings in the finish from handling, but nothing you'll really notice if you're not looking for it.
1. GFS Pickups - Vintage '59 PAF Neck (8k), Fat PAF Bridge (14k)
2. Vintage '59 Wiring - HUGE difference in tone
3. Replaced toggle switch, lead wire, and pots (CTS pot for bridge volume, rest are Alpha)
4. Tusq Nut - Professionally installed and filed
5. New tailpiece - Goes down to the wood for Gibson-like energy transfer and sustain
6. Speed knobs
7. Schaller strap locks
BONUS: Stock Epiphone pickups will be included!
Needless to say, I have spent a few dollars and hours making this thing my own. I love this guitar, but my musical tastes have evolved and are now better voiced by a Strat. If I had the money to hold on to this one I certainly would, but as it is I have to suck it up and deal with the trade.
I offer a 7-day money back guarantee and shipping insurance, and can ship internationally at additional cost. Message me with any questions!
