    EDS 1275 - mid 70's Restoration - Aug 2019 - Final update !!!

    You could try asking my luthier/amigo outside of Fort Worth, Texas (via a virtual request, no need to travel). He wired my Epi 1275 clone when he replaced all 4 pickups, the pots, etc. PM me for his email address.

    Are the Pots used by Gibson in their Reissue Les Paul any good?

    Gibson Custom Shop pots are just fine ... unless you're super anal, which I am. But YMMV

    Where are all of the “affordable” Reissues

    I recently nailed a fabulous R9 from Marks Guitar Loft for about $3400. Outstanding custom shop reissue and priced well below the insane range. Keep looking.

    What do you think about a mid 1980s P-90 Pickup?

    My take on P90's is 1) Gibson P90s are good if they are not ceramic 2) Anything ceramic in a guitar pickup is a pandemic spreader center 3) Boutique P90's range from good to really, mind-blowingly good. 4) only thing possibly better is a Zhangbucker Firebird pickup.

    In memory of the 2015's - this time the JRs

    Acknowledged. The P90 would be an easy swap. But not the neck profile.

    Sweet. The Gibson version (cherry) is $2K. You scored.

    In memory of the 2015's - this time the JRs

    Man, remember the 2015 Gibson Les Paul JR SC's? I own 2 of them, a sunburst and a cherry. Both have had their robotuners replaced by old-school Klusons. I consider these to be among the best Gibson off-shoots. Would I prefer to have a Lukas Nelson '56 SC? Sure, but not by much. (note the 'k')...

    Yup. My 1980 Standard certainly does.

    Opportunity to buy back my old Les Paul... Thoughts.?

    Understood. And I empathize ... like a huge mo' I sold my 1952 Les Paul (original, P90's, trapeze bridge, goldtop). If it were offered today at today's prices I would have to suffer the pain of passing on it. So, I get where you're coming from. I just think that you're about to pay over $4K...
