i love the warmth and sustain of a les paul but i HATE how fat the neck is i usually play wizzards

so i was thinking what is the best way to get around this as cheap as possible and still have a good guitar

Plan

throw a set of 490r and 498t pickups into a schecter c1 classic (lp studio pup)

wood both are mahogony/maple top
scale i prefer the a 25.5 scale feel over 24.75(but how much is scale relative to tone??)
sustain thinner neck so thats a - but the string thru and neck thru are a +
Bridge very similar
Tuners bro has grover on his dean and had no problems with them


Questions

1) how close to a lp studio do u think this will sound
2) will i run into any problem with pole spacing ( is a c1 classic f space do they make the pickups f sapce is so)

You'd have a host of problems in that point.
Try getting a luthier to shave the neck safely but that might limit to the guage strings you can use before 2 much bow occurs and it snaps...

OR...

Get and ESP EC Model...

OR...

Get something custom made

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

lps are set neck the cost of getting it getting the neck removed getting a new neck professionaly installed would be ...VERY high and it would lose sustain

yeah i was thinking about the ec but i decided to post this and get a few opinions on how a 25.5 scale neck might sound since i really like the feel of the longer scale

get an ESP EC, better idea than what you might think. but choose one with duncans cuz they are nearer the LP tone than EMGs

I tried a Les Paul DC today, I am getting it or its brother next month. Good upper fret access, 490's and a 60's slim taper neck. Not near as thin as a Wizard, but much better than the baseball neck.

i decided i wil just use my rga 121 when i want to use the longer scale neck and kind of "learn" the feel of the shorter scale and smaler nut with


i played a 500 last week and it felt pretty good. it apears that there is not a real big difference between the ec 500 and ec 1000 from what i see online but i just wanna make sure i am not missing anything

question?

is there any significant sonic difference between the ec 500 and ec 1000

NOTE: I apologize if this thread has gotten off topic

Im thinking get the classic (great guitar btw) and get a set of duncan 59s, they're bassicaly PAF copies so you will get an even more "Authentic" LP tone with them. Plus i don't like the gibsons really, i would rather leave the duncan hot rodded set then put the 490s in.

Plus you also get the 5 way position switch, something that does not come with the LTD which is somehow more expensive god knows why.

i will admit i like the 59 alot but i love the 490s and my rga 121 already has the same switching as the classic

dont know if any 1 else agrees but the classic just seems like a better made guitar

Well, the C-1 Classic already has a 59' in it anyway...

The only difference I can see from the specs is hardware (bridge, tuners) and abalone inlays/binding.
