    Yes. I put the stock pickup back in before I sold the guitar. I'm keeping the TT for future use. Very nice pickup.

    Beautiful sibblings ! Very classy pair.

    You just made me realize why I don't want a black guitar. Because I'd have to be wiping and buffing and shinning it all the time :rofl:

    Thanks. Not as much wiping and buffing as you may think with the the amount of wax I put on my guitars, they’re slippery as!

    Well, if Epiphones count, I have two:

    A 2007 LP Ultra:

    HPIM4112 med2.jpg
    HPIM4109 med.jpg

    That has a Burstbucker in the neck and a SD Alnico II Pro in the bridge to get my Slash on. A great guitar that sadly is out of commission waiting for a refret right now.

    The other is a 1988-ish Les Paul II (one of the first ever Epiphone LP copies):

    Took a lot of work to get that trem usable again, and I still need to shave down the low E saddle to properly intonate. But it was worth it because it has great fretwork and a really nice piece of Rosewood for the fretboard.

    It just has some leftover pickups in it now (although it sounds good regardless), but I'm not sure what I really want to do with it. I'm considering the idea of P-90s, but it's really more of a shredder guitar that wants HBs.

    I've got a couple of LP Melody Makers with a belly cut that are as comfortable as anything. I also love my 2017 LP tribute P-90 GT that rocks the roof off.
    The epi's are great, too. The silver flake Standard is getting better with age and the custom is killer for 80's rock. DSCN1817.JPG 1asmlcs.jpg DSCN1451.JPG DSCN1151.JPG DSCN1185.JPG smlpj.jpg
    The LPJ is my studio secret weapon for hot, dirty legato riffs.

    Still just the one, I would add a DC special or jr, if Gibson would make one that wasn’t overprice or fubared from the get go.

    Added a poker chip...

    I had no idea there was such a thing! What is it called? That would be the perfect LP for me (although my chambered Ultra is pretty great, too!).

    It's a ZZounds Exclusive called the Les Paul Classic Lite. There was a Custom Classic Light a few years back.

    A thinner, more beveled version of an LP? That sounds like a great idea for a new model. :hmm:

    They could call it the Sturdy Guitar! :thumb:

    I am going to resist getting into debt because the SG is more comfortable in my situation. The Les Paul looks ultra cool but it never feels like home as an SG does to me. I had a shiny new Les Paul Standard in 91' and it just didnt feel comfy to me. $950.00 new in those days. No weight relief and a gorgeous vintage sunburst finish with natural back. oh well. SG for life.

    I remember Kim Thayil used to play a LP Lite, he referred to it as his "Diet Les Paul". Great-sounding guitars, a little crispier.

    Most of the Epiphones do have a veneer on both sides.
