I'm definetly buying a Strat, but what humbuckers could I put in my Epi Les Paul Special II to make it sound like a better Les Paul?

A set neck Standard.





You're not going to get a typical 'Les Paul' sound out of a flat top alder body and a bolt on neck.


You could make your guitar sound better with new pickups though.

This is pretty much spot on.

No point in spending $200 on a set of nice pickups for a $180 guitar.

I barely have the cash for one guitar, I probably cant buy a third guitar.

Instead of buying loads (in this case, 2), low-quality cheap-ass guitars, why not save up a litte, and buy a decent or even good guitar?
Like some guy here just said, there really is NO point spending $200 on a $180 guitar.

It's not even alder, it's basswood. If tone woods get into it, then flat response basswood is not going to give the LP sound.


My suggestion: Rondo Music ftw.

Im saving up for a used ' 57 Strat. That is like the best NEW guitar IMO.
