Hey everybody.

So, I've been useing tab at UG for about a year now, so I figured I regester on the forums. I'm not to fourms, just here.

Any way, for Christmas I got a Epiphone SG Special, and that's when I really started. Last year I took a Guitar class, so I know the basics.

About me - I like to play Coheed and Cambria. I learned all of Devil in Jersey City, and I'm learning The Crowing. So yea. I like As I Lay Dying, but that's a little too fast for me to learn. I'm trying.

My question is, with my SG (Epiphone), should I look into buying new parts for it. Like pick up's, I dunno what else I could do, maybe new bridge work? (Not the teeth. Aha.)

So yea, thanks for your help.

Yea, for atleast 2 or so years untill I can pay for a car. I would really like a Gibson Explorer.

And are pick ups just a drop in type of mod or what?

Welcome.

If you have any modification questions the place to ask it is in Gear Building and Customizing.

I know how to do the things you're asking about, but I'd rather not say them here for fear of screwing it up and not having anyone to back me up.

I would try getting a new guitar before starting to mod that one, as it's slightly a little "bad" in modification because of the woods it's made out of. I mean, not a bad first mod, but definately not something to put $200 pickups into.

Welcome again and enjoy the stay!
