    Custom toggle ring sources?

    Interested in replacing the stock toggle switch ring on my Epiphone Les Paul Gold Top with a custom printed version. Any recommendations for good sources? Want to keep close to the stock cream color... Thanks!

    Removing toggle switch "chip" on 2017 Epi LP Standard Gold Top

    Thanks, Lostventure. It looks like a pretty straightforward process, but never had a go at it. Assuming the toggle nut will tighten up OK without the chip in place?

    Removing toggle switch "chip" on 2017 Epi LP Standard Gold Top

    I noticed when I re-wired my 2017 Epiphone Les Paul Gold Top that the plastic toggle "chip" was stuck onto the top. What's the best way to remove this? Also, what's the best way to clean up any mastic left underneath?

    Using a wall hanger?

    Really dig the idea of convenience using a wall hanger but never tried one based upon concern over temperature changes, sunlight, etc. Any thoughts about using one and which are preferable over others?

    Problem with Gotoh bridge not a tight fit on the posts?

    Very slight movement on the posts without any string tension. I haven't installed it yet.

    Problem with Gotoh bridge not a tight fit on the posts?

    The intonation is a bit off on my 2017 Epiphone Les Paul Gold Top, so I bagged a Gotoh replacement bridge, which has a bit more saddle travel than the stock Epi bridge. When test fitting the Gotoh onto the included posts, I noticed a bit of slop on the bridge fit. I'm guessing the string tension...

    Yeah, the mods are almost a given. I gutted mine, added a 50's style wiring harness and Seymour Duncan '59 pickups. She sounds great ,now just need to improve play-ability.

    Bridge upgrade for 2017 Epiphone Les Paul Standard?

    So, have been playing the new Epiphone Les Paul Standard (2017) for about three months now, getting used to the 12" radius and D shaped neck after 27 years with an American Standard Strat. No real issues with intonation or buzzing on the stock bridge, but am wondering if upgrading will improve...

    Heeeeelp! How to tighten pots and keep pointers in position?

    I've just rewired my 2017 Epiphone Les Paul Standard Gold Top with a 50's style wiring harness, Switchcraft toggle/output jack and Seymour Duncan 59 pickups...man, what a difference! All went swimmingly with one exception; I added knob pointers and having a helluva time tightening the pot nuts...

    Stock Epiphone Les Paul Standard Harness and Pick-ups

    Relatively new member here, so not quite sure where to post this. I'm installing a 50's style wiring harness and Seymour Duncan '59 pickups in my 2017 Epi Gold Top. I'd like to sell the stock harness and pick-ups but have absolutely no idea what they're worth. Suggestions? Thanks!
