You could re-paint it, change the pickups? New pickups?

Anything you can take off really, including the paint and what ever up at the headstock.

Lol, im gonna be kick for saying this all the time....but Duncan Invaders! Or a Seymour duncan super distortion, i hear theyre good for punk. Maybe its worth putting EMGs in an epiphone, as to what type, im not sure.

wat's ur budget
EMG's are good for that stuff from wat i heard on here, not sure which type
GFS are good especially if ur on a budget
Really almost every "brand name" company makes good pickups for punk,metal, etc.....
Still some are better than others.....

Heres the dealio.
If your on a tight budget, get the Duncan Invader
If youve plenty of money, grab an EMG 81/85 set or a 60.

EMG's are the pretty much best pickups you can buy (in my opinion) but they are also the most expensive. I would recomend the Seymour Duncan Hot Rod set which is the JB and JAzz. Those are really Duncans best pickups, and you can cover them with metal pickup covers for the vintage look. I promise youll love the JB if you get it.
