Sounds great, love that demo.

I love that it has a long neck tenon. We know the pickups but how are the electronics on these babies? Do they need to be changed? Some suggestions for mods:

New Faber stoptail and locking system and bridge - maximise sustain and tone.
A new scarf-jointed headstock with "Gibson" on it ;D

Actually they have epiphone tonelock bridge and tailpiece which kinda click on, it's actually really cool!

The difference between the Faber and the Epi is in the material used. The Epi bushings are rather soft pot metal, while the Fabers are steel, and I can tell ya from experience, the fit into the body is MUCH tighter! Makes a very noticeable difference in clarity and sustain. I'm not sure I'd go with the aluminum TP on a :jb: as it's already a bright-sounding guitar.

How do the Fabers match up with the Tone Pros comparatively?
