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!

That's really about all you can do to make an acoustic better unless you want to put in better tuners.
