Hi, I'm the newbie here from Rhode Island. I've been playing for 40 years and just recently made the switch from Strats to Les Pauls. I have a Epiphone Goth Les Paul Studio which I love ,with the exception of the stock bridge which was giving me tuning nightmares. I took that off and replaced it with a brand ,new ,Graph-Tech NV-2 bridge which you can get from Musician's Friend for $75.00. After installing that, my guitar now stays in perfect tune and also has more tone and sustain as well.
