  • Add or change to your guitar

    What would you add/change as standard to your guitar other than pickup's. I have a Les Paul and would go for Jimmy Page wiring
    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Besides putting EMG's in my Ibanez, I would prob get sperzel locking tuners, an EMG Afterburner, and gold hardware... except the tuners and afterburner would have to have holes drilled into my guitar.. I'm not too keen on that, cuz as the saying goes, the more holes you put in your guitar, the worse it will sound.

            Strat 1 (American HM Strat), nothing - it came perfect. (However, the middle pickups dead, so it looks like new singles are comming down the pipe [EMG SAV, SAV, 85])

            Strat 2 (MIM Standard Strat), baritone neck, new nut and tuners, new pickups, new wiring. Oh, and the Standard bridge sucks ass, so that's going too. Soon to go EMG 85/85.

            LP - New nut, tuners, switch, pots, caps, output jack & pickups. Soon to go EMG 85/81.

                I dont think I own a stock guitar. All pickups are duncans or old fenders, replaced all electronics, tuners, pickguards, bridges, nuts, everything.

                  new nut on my strat, and i might get round to finishing the paintjob on it one day.

                  new machine heads on the les paul, and gut the whole wiring, crappy epiphone electrics.

                    Blocking the trem, adding 2 spings for a reverby effect (not shure if it really works but I like to think it does) changed all the electronics and of course the pickups. Put some covers on the duncans. Shaller strap locks. That's about all I did to my RG, I'm happy.
