Hi, I want to make a vintage spec guitar. Based off of a 1957 Les Paul Custom. My favourite guitar in the world. Unlike my dad, I don't have enough money to go and buy the reissue. So I am thinking of buying an Epiphone Les Paul Custom in black, then working with it. What parts would I need to put on it? I know this could get quite pricey... does it seem like a good idea? It would be my main guitar.

So far, I think this is all the parts I need for now other than the guitar:

-Burstbucker 1 and 2 pickups
-Nickel stopbar tail piece
-ABR-1 Bridge in gold
-Vintage tulip tuners (fun fact: I always thought LP Customs had the nickel tuners since the beginning, and I never knew they had the plastic ones until my dad got his)

I think thats about it. So tell me what you think, thanks.
