i have a epi les paul custom that i bought from a friend as my first real guitar, i bought it for 250 bucks. I played it for awhile until i bought my strat and now i hate how the les paul plays, mainly because it wont stay in tune.

so heres my dilemma, i can either sell the les paul, or improve it back to playable status.

if i updated, i would have to get new tuners, a bridge and have a new saddle cut. and in the best case scenario switch out the pickups with some more my style.

i dont know, that sounds like a pain to me. and if you dont like how it plays then why upgrade it? i would say save for a new guitar. mabe a nice strat if you like your other one.

Part of it is probably because you have played the Strat for longer so the LP is different.

If it won't stay in tune, bung some nice locking tuners on it, get a new nut, then give it to someone who can cut the nut right and set the action etc for you.

New strings too.
