Ok about a month ago I was in the market for a guitar that would keep me satified for a while so I purchased a Epi G400 Custom because I liked the feel of it and it sounded pretty good through the tube amp I was playing it through. Now about a month later I have assesed the defects of it and im ready to make some upgrades on it. First off, the bridge has to go, it rattles and the sustain is ok but I want more. Im thinking of buying the Tonepros locking TOM seen here.
Does anyone have any complaint about this piece or is it good? I would also like to upgrade the bridge P-up since I dont really use the middle and the neck sounds pretty good already. After playing a LP Standard equiped with burst bucker pros (Seenhere ) I really liked the sound, but im not sure how these would sound in such a lighter guitar as an SG. What opinions do you guys have on these and are there better P-ups out there built for Classic Rock/blues (Hendrix/ACDC/Ramones/The Who) and Punk (Agent Orange/Stooges) that fit a SG body design? BTW I have a Roland Blues Cube 60 amp just in case you need to know. Thank you

Not sure about the bridge...it won't improve the sustain too much cos sustain comes from mass. A les paul sustains for hours cos it's body is as thick as two short planks (in every sense of the word). An SG has a thin body, so it won't ring out as long...

As for pickups, I'd recommend the Duncan Screamin' Demon, I think it's called. You need something that has a "PAF on steriods" sort of tone, so it's got the classic tone, with more power for punk and heavier stuff.

ALSO: check out the DiMarzio Norton.

Sweet, thanks man. The reason for replacing the bridge is not so much a sustain problem its the fact that the one thats on it rattles alot and kinda sucks.
