Hey
i have picked out the pickups i wanted to replace on my epi les paul. now i know most of you will tell me to upgrade to a gibson or something but this guitar you cant seperate me from, its just made for me. plus i like how epiphones have a more mid-bass sound to them.
anyway, because epiphone usually sticks in shotty electronics in their guitars, i was thinking of replacing the whole set of guts in it. pickups, pots, caps, toggle switches.
i was wondering if i could have suggestions for types of pots and caps for my les paul. also i am having a hard time deciding between a sh-4 and a sh-5 for a bridge pickup.
thanks alot for your help

No, but one time satan came out of my air vent and started playing death metal. That, or I should stop drinking.

I'm actually picking up my Epi Lp with new pick-ups tommorow. I put an sh-2 in the neck and an sh-5 in the bridge, it really comes down to how much more metal you play, if you play more so in the metal genre or heavy rock the sh-5 is the one to go for.

The guts in epis is pretty shoddy and many times doesnt last long anyways. So no wont hurt to replace it. 500k cts pots are good. And I like the orange drop caps bit more expensive tho. And the pickup switch doent like to last long. Give you a chance to fix the output jack that always seems to come loose on epis.
