Ok...so I was gonna replace my input jack today but it was too big and now i've decided that i'm just going to buy some new humbuckers and pots and stuff to upgrade me guitar. The guitar is an Epi SG Special and I was looking into buying a set of EMG 81 and 85's , any suggestions on something else would be cool. Would it really be worth replacing all the pots or is that something I should wait awhile to look into? Thanks.

Dude I wouldnt waste your money.You would be better off buying a new guitar that upgrapde that one.With the wood that its built out of its not worth it.But hey thats my opinion.

But its better fixing it to up be just as good as a $500 guitar for $200 then buying a whole new one.

^ Not if its crap wood, besides any epi special just sucks even if you do upgrade it.

yea, i guess so. I was looking at this LTD M-100FM at the shop and it was on sale for $190 and it looked really nice, I was thinkingabout putting it on layaway.

Don't go for the LTD-100 series as they are usually agathis with crap trems (if any, I think the M series have LFRs). Save up for the 400/1000 series, that's your best bet. LTD make some of the best guitars for the money. You should try looking into used Ibanez RG 5xx and up, you will not regret buying one of those.
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!

if you want cheap guitar and wanna still put emg's into them look at the ibanez rg321mh since the mahogany body will surely compliment the emg pickups

just get an ibanez man. dude there are so many out there, not just brand new fresh out of the factory stuff, but also some second hand models. im sure there are stuff on sale like on ebay or whatever. im sure guitarists take care of their guitars, like an ibanez, like me.
