I reckon if you update those Epiphone pickups to the same pickups that people update their gibson pickups too.... hey, jobs a good 'un ;)
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

I've got one you can try. If you like mine, it may be worth paying the shipping and grabbing it

I've got a Peterson Strobo tuner coming. Some of my guitars need a setup, thought I'd have a crack at doing it myself.

Good idea. Since switching almost exclusively to Telecasters, I started setting up my own guitars late last year. Not that tricky at all really, although I'm still a bit nervous with a truss rod!

Strobes are great. I was lucky enough to score two Sonic Research Turbo Tuners for silly money on TM a few years ago - really good.
All the gear... absolutely no idea...

Awesome! As far as tuners go they’re meant to be the dogs scallops

Those are pretty sweet. I've got one for each guitar, kids buy them for me for my birthday every year.
