I'm looking to put some pickups into my Epiphone Les Paul MIJ (open book headstock ;-) ).
Currently I have a Seth Lover in the bridge but it's just not doing it for me. I like the mid range and the response but the highs are just well, too high. The problem is I can't get a tone that works...
The US Air Force wants me to perform the National Anthem for my wife's change of command ceremony at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina.
It'll be a very professional situation with about 450 troops standing and saluting at attention, with my wife accepting the US flag while I play the Star...
I have a MIJ Epiphone (with the proper open book headstock) but the pickups are pretty bad. I'd want to upgrade all the wiring but am considering a Gibson quick connect system from Ebay. Either that or an Emerson pre wired system.
Would either have issues fitting into the Epiphone?
Can I completely pull the Fret and put it back?
I tried hammering it down with a plastic tipped hammer but it didn't move much. A little... But I don't feel comfortable going any harder.
Tonight I'll bring out the soldering iron to heat things up.
My last resort would be to pull it.
