Hello UG friends! I recently purchased the Epiphone EJ 200(laughs and criticism not appreciated). I bought the acoustic because I work out on the road and I didn't want to tote around a really nice acoustic(Martin, Gibson, Taylor etc). My question(s): To make this acoustics sound a little better, would anyone recommend swapping out the plastic nut, saddle and bridge pins with bone? I'm hoping it will give a little more sustain. Obviously, it won't make this guitar sound like a $3000 acoustic. I realize this, I'm just trying to boost its sound quality a little. It sounds decent now, but I think this acoustic has potential. Suggestions are welcome and NOT "ugh, throw it away and buy a more expensive guitar" I've explained why I didn't buy an expensive acoustic, so don't make yourself look like an ass! Thank you UG Forums!
This thread should be helpful.

Thanks, but it was a dead link...
Sorry...try the link now.
Hey thanks!! It helped some! I think I'm going to go with a Tusq nut and saddle!
That's really about all you can do to make an acoustic better unless you want to put in better tuners.
