    Why not buy an Epi LP standard if you're going to upgrade everything anyway?

    I'd rather buy a good inexpensive guitar, and mod it the way I want, instead of buying a more expensive guitar, and having to do almost all the same upgrades! I'm more concerned more about guitar utility, than guitar beauty and hypothetical future resale value. This approach allows me to afford and enjoy more guitars ...more variety.

    I prefer that style, I wish more bolt-ons came like that

    I never saw the need to upgrade the higher end Epiphones, so I guess that's why I would just buy an Epi standard or custom instead of modding a cheaper one.

    I dig inexpensive gits but that spec set just looks like a cheap toy.

    I think they look like they might be fun.I play the crap out of my Special II. Added tuners, new nut and P90's. It plays and sounds plenty good to me and I learned a bit about doing some mods as well.
