Hey guys, kinda new here and need to ask a question. (sorry if it's already been asked) On my Epiphone Les Paul, would it help to buy a Gibson Tune-O-Matic Bridge system? Why would it help, and in which ways? Or why wouldn't it?

And if anyone else has any suggestions on Epiphone mods, please tell me some of your suggestions.

BTW I already put EMG 81/85 in it to rule out the obvious pickup mod.

Thanks and God Bless!

if you have changed the pick ups you are good to go.

the hardware on the epi les pauls is good. it may be worth upgrading the nut but the bridge/tail piece and tuners dont need swapping at all.

Epi use good hardware, I've never had any problems with mine, I suppose a tune-o-matic bridge is pretty idiot proof, there's not much you can do to make it better or worse

Saddles are an important part to play too
Other than that, a Bone nut would be a wonderful addition.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

You wouldnt notice any difference with a gibson TOM. The pots in epis are not very good a good thing to replace along with pickups.

A new Nut and saddles for your existing TOM might help, but there's no reason in swapping out the entire system unless you want a change in hardware colour, etc.
