    Epiphone '59 Les Paul Standard Owners Club

    I had one of these on back order for months and they never got it in stock so i wound up just grabbing the slash instead. kinda regret not waiting but with the JB 59 maybe it will be easier to obtian one without a 6 month wait!!!

    Whole Lotta Humbuckers??

    Hey Guys Looking at a couple sets of pick ups for one of my LP's ... I think my taste is changing in my old age cause the usual SD JB n 59 just isn't cutting it anymore. I recently bought a 490r 490t kit PCB toggle output jack and all the screws and plastics. I put this kit in my classic (...

    Epiphone ProBucker Pickup review

    Up date on the pro buckers 2 n 3 i removed the covers from and put them in my chibson. The PBs sounded great with the covers on so it's no suprise that they sound great with the covers off.. Before the chibson sounded very metalish with no tone with the SD JB n 59 in the guitar. Now with the...

    Face lift for my Custom

    Pretty happy with the results. The guitar plays nice. I still have a few tweeks i need to do to it but she's dialed in pretty good now. I love these Gibson Slash pups I think they sound as good as the SD APH2's. Gibson did a good job with these. I would of been happy with these in the Gibson's...

    I have even gone so far as to use the Faber kits on my higher end Epi's like my 59's and my Slash. But the quality of these new EPI's is amazing and you honestly could get away with leaving it totally stock !! I just like to tinker and for the price of these things you don't have to worry about...

    Amen brother well said I totally agree!! I have a box full of these cheap ass bridges I never use them I always change mine out with the first string change BUT if you had too the stock bridges will work just fine .. For me it's a matter of pref not a matter of needing to replace.

    I think they are great guitars! Eboney board and if you get one of the newer ones you get the bigger diamond on the head stock. I got mine the first few months of 2020 so i have the smaller diamond i missed out on that revamp.. The electronics are decent the Pro Buckers sound great and as long...
