    Nice Guitar mate, I hope it is real and not Fake because you can't polish a turd!

    I have to admit that there are some fakes out there that are very well crafted and the parts are in good qualities. I have seen and played some of them. :naughty:

    First :wave: Welcome to MLP Ben!
    Nice looking Epi, and I think you'll notice a nice improvement in the tone with the upgrades.

    Good so far. I've ordered a Bigsby and a metric roller bridge and waiting for them to arrive so I can install them straight away. I've never drill holes on a guitar before but I think I'll be fine... :thumb:

    Nice one!!

    Recently got myself an Indonesian Les Paul Standard in Blue..

    Looks like you have done the same mods that I have as well too except I used the RS complete modern kit.

    Did your grover locker 106g tuner screw holes match up? Mine were out by about 2mm had to toothpick fill and re-drill. Other than that it was smooth sailing.
