that strat neck on a les paul body would suck and prob wont fit! but you could do a dean neck or a warlock neck! a set of emgs 81/85 or for passive sh-59 and sh-13 dimebucker!

thanks i try the warlock neck. and what were the pickups you said? i have no clue what that meant. Dumb it down for me

Warlock necks are 24 frets, and 25.5 inches, Epi necks are 22 frets and 24.75 inches, they probably won't match up.

What was the purpose of buying it if it was ugly and you don't like the neck? Was it damn cheap?

Epi LP Special II's are cheap to begin with.

By the way, white Les Pauls rock. Like granite.

Buckethead anybody?

I can see this turning into a battle of the LP's (disregarding the fact Bucketheads guitar is a Kramer, I think).
