    Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Lazarus 1959 Les Paul Standard - new JB signature guitar

    Well I think we shouldn‘t be too strict with Epiphone…they also said that Lazarus will come with AAAA-tops :rofl:

    Actually I also ordered some aged knobs from Crazyparts but unfortunately they didn‘t fit so I had to send them back. For sure I will add some more parts but I think I substituted the most important ones already

    Thanks - I am really happy with the result even if I still like the Tokai a bit better. I guess it‘s mainly because of the „hotter“ pickups. The Lazarus sounds more vintage and the Tokai like a Lazarus on speed… :dude:

    She‘s back… I really like the aged hardware and pickup covers. After professional setup and fret adjustment including sharp fret ends she plays way better. Also the Faber parts improve sustain and attack significantly…

    I think we should look at the Lazarus in a realistic way: 1. is the Lazarus a good guitar - YES 2. are the specs comparable to some higher priced Les Pauls - YES 3. is the quality out of the box at the Epi on a comparable level with Gibson, Tokai, whoever? - NO - sharp fret edges an dull frets...

    Nice Heritage… :yesway: I remember Gary Moore playing Heritage on his last hardrock album „After the war“ Same thing happened to me - after I got the Lazarus I had to have something more impressive and I got myself… Don‘t get me wrong; I still like the Lazarus and I am sure it will be...

    I am sure that @hepsen can give you information on that as he had installed the same hardware

    As the hardware is chrome i wouldn‘t expect it to age the way nickel hardware does. Main reason for me to change the hardware was not only the look but also the quality of the faber hardware and the expected sound improvement.
